Yes, a ‘jailbreak’ will happen on April 4 here in Davao, and it is fully supported by the Archdiocesan Commission on Prison Welfare (ACPW), Marist Fathers and Brothers, Marist Sisters, Couples for Christ, Handmaid of the Lord, Alexian Brothers, NCCC Davao and the City Government of Davao.
What!?!? You must be thinking that the Dabawenyos have totally gone nuts. Well, not really.
What I am actually talking about is the ‘Jailbreak’, a musical-theatrical production showcasing the talents of Davao City Jail inmates. This is organized to allow people to better understand the plight and struggles of the detainees. Funds raised will be used to address their medical, nutritional, legal and training needs.
The participants underwent theater, voice and dance workshops in preparation for this unique event. Patrick Seras, the concert’s director, composed all the songs and music used in this original dance-drama.
Check below the YouTube video which features Davao inmates interpreting the song “Dinggin Sana”.
