Duplo : Duplo 0riginally, the duplo was a means introduced in the celebration to relieve the monotony and sadness of the prayers for the dead. Later the duplo became an elaborate dramatic debate in verse it is usually rhymed but not scanned. The duplo can hardly be called a drama, for it has no interest in character portrayal or in plot. The duplo is usually stage a temporary shelter built in front of the house of the deceased.PowerPoint Presentation: It consisted largely of puns, jokes, and riddles in the vernacular. These verses became so popular and the social feature of the ceremony became so emphasized that gradually the prayer itself came to occupy a minor place and was finally relegated to the end of the ceremony. The prayer in verse was called by the Tagalog people the Dalit .PowerPoint Presentation: The general practice of Duplo is for some of the players to accuse others of fancied crimes, while the accused defend themselves. The dialogue becomes very animated with quotations from the Awits and Corridos thrown into the debate. Rules of logic are hardly observed, but wits clash merrily. When one debater gives an incorrect answer to the riddle propounded to him, he is usually punished by being forced to say an elaborate prayer, a dalit, for the decease.PowerPoint Presentation: Before the start of the of the duplo, the king begins by saying one our father, one Hail Mary, and one requiem for the dead. After the prayer, he says aloud: ”Numeracion”. The participant would answer “Tribulacion”. At once the king commences the play by throwing a ball or a handkerchief to one of the villacos. The villaco bows to the king and takes the ball or handkerchief to a villaca who replies to the speech which the same villaco has made. Copious quotations from the awits usually grace their speech. The Villaco and the Villaca : The Villaco and the Villaca The introductory “On the road to Zion Roams a lion Is there any body here Who wants to own it?” The villacos hurl accusations; the villacas defend and make countercharges. A villaco may recite a poem, presenting a problem.PowerPoint Presentation: The Problem Over in our Kingdom of Spain When Charles the Fifth yet was King.
