About Are You Ready To Take The Law Into Your Own Hands

The biggest popstar of the Philippines has been kidnapped, and it’s up to a ragtag squad of fans to bring her back. They’ll brave rooftop chases, mystic rituals, knife fights in the back of speeding jeepneys and underwater shoot-outs to liberate their idol from a conspiracy that threatens to tear their country apart.

Over one explosive night this vigilante crew of pop obsessives, misfits and outsiders race the streets of Manila, careening between street beauty pageants, political protests, underground hip-hop battles and senator’s homes.

And then there’s the music: this blistering action epic is set to 40 years of Filipino pop, vaulting from 1970s peace anthems to contemporary Filipino hip-hop, from viral YouTube techno to iconic Pinoy power ballads. The fast and the fabulous face off in the dizzying thrill-ride that results.

A neon-drenched action adventure set in a nation on the brink, Are You Ready To Take the Law Into Your Own Hands has zero political relevance to current events. None. At all.

Are You Ready To Take The Law Into Your Own Hands is commissioned and presented by Arts House through the City of Melbourne, as part of AsiaTOPA through Arts Centre Melbourne, with support from the Playking Foundation.
