An Introduction �A traditional Filipino dramatization of the life & sufferings of Jesus Christ. �Done in song (pasyon) and recitation. �Presented to the public during Lent. �Usually done in the streets or the backyard of a Church. �One popular Senakulo is the one held in Morong, Rizal.
Senakulo �Senakulo is when a communtiy comes together to reenact Jesus’ life especially his sufferings. �In Morong, Rizal the Senakulo is held within 2 days starting from Holy Thursday until the end of Good Friday. �The Senakulo involves real crucifiction and real sufferings for the people think this is a form of penance, however, this is not encouraged. �The Senakulo has become a tourist attraction because of its uniqueness, authenticity & passion.
Pasyon: A Song for Senakulo � Narrative of the Pasion, Death & Ressurection of Jesus Christ. � Epic poetry with stanzas of five lines and each line has eight syllables. � Popular in the Philippines especially during the Holy Week. � Set into writing by Gaspar Aquino de Belen, written in 1703 & approved in 1704. � In 1852, there was another version made by Aniceto de Merced but it was not as popular as the other one. � The Pabasa or the recitation will span several days extending to Black Saturday.
�Singers will chant the verses of Pasyon without pause from beginning to end in front of a specially-constructed shrine or altar. �This is facilitated by the chanters working in shifts due to its very long duration.
Senakulo, Now � The orginal Senakulo has evolved to the modern drama form. � The modern form was adapted in 1993 by the Pangkalinangang Kilusan ng mga Taga-Morong (PAKITAMO), the local cultural society in Morong, Rizal, for a more comprehensive presentation of the story. � The play is entitiled “Ang Tagapagligtas” and is based on four gospels showing Christ’s nativity, youth, public ministry, suffering & death. � Fictional characters and dialogues are used as details to link the gaps left open in the Bible.
�The play is in three acts - one act presented each night from Holy Wednesday to Good Friday. � A verse is sung in the traditional pasyon manner as prologue to each act. �This modern form does not use real crucifixion & suffering.
