Seditious art - an art opposing the government.- Using various forms of indirection to criticize the government, plays of this era turned to historical themes, and later to the news, government statistics, social work surveys, and economic analysis facts that were hard for the government to deny or to portray current events. Among them areHindi AcoPataywritten byJuan Matapang Cruz,TanikalangGuintobyJuan Abad, andKahapon, Ngayon at BukasbyAurelio Tolentino. The authors, actors and spectators of these "seditious plays" were arrested and imprisoned by the Americans.<br /></li> <li> 2.
