“Bayan Ko” (My Country) is a dramatic reading based on Floro Quibuyen’s book A Nation Aborted: Rizal, American Hegemony and Philippine Nationalism.
Quibuyen wrote and directed “Bayan Ko” in consultation with his PI 100 (Rizal) class, which presented it as an intermission number in the Symposium on Globalization, which, in turn, was organized by his Political Science 190 class. The symposium was held at the College of Fisheries Auditorium (Miagao, Iloilo) on February 20, 2002, as part of the UPV College of Arts and Sciences activities during the Social Sciences Week. It was received with a standing ovation. (The Pilipino text was translated by Annabelle Pastor-Fisher for Pilipinas, an internationally circulated, refereed academic journal).
