Set on the streets of the Philippines, INTERSECTION blatantly depicts the problems that challenge the society from an ordinary person’s perspective. Adapted from Mix Villalon’s Streetlight Manifesto which intriguingly discusses life, morality, and justice; and with Elyrah Salanga- Torralba’s Eskinita that pictures the struggle of being in the slums where people are rather superstitious than helpful, over traffic-congested streets.  Starring Malvin Ramos, Jomar Carpena, Roseball Toledo, and Roi Neri for Streetlight Manifesto, and Diane Formoso, Jzar Tabilin, Sarah Valdez, Rej Duka, Gio Potes, Ian, Cy Zinampan, and Victor Avecilla for Eskinita. INTERSECTION aims to overhaul the root cause of the problems an ordinary person faces every day.

UP Rep first staged in 1972, pioneered by Director Behn Cervantes as a socially relevant performing group that would reflect the deteriorating state of the country during the Martial Law, and show their continuous commitment to Philippine Culture and the Arts. UP Rep was entitled with the University Performing Group (UPG) in theater, becoming the official University Performing Group for Philippine Theater as appointed by the Office of Initiatives for Culture and Arts.
