APAF Ecosystem

APAF PH with Landi on the Side Mafia 2012-2020

Kulang pa kami. Marami ring nag-APAF na kasing landi namin.

From 2012 to 2019, PH artists were flown to Japan to collaborate with ASEAN artists in APAF events through the generous support of the Japan Foundation Manila. Swerte to have created performances and engaged with communities in the heart of Ikebukuro, and with the view of Mt. Fuji when we were in Shizuoka. Great times.

To continue this project of international collaboration, UP Diliman partnered with the Japan Foundation Manila to create the 2019 international conference, “Rhetoric of Creative Partnership: Conversations on Cross-cultural Artistic Exchanges” which featured presentations and performances of artists from APAF 2018 and 2019.

This year, JFM has given us another platform to continue the work that we have started in Japan to share our reflections on the work, and new approaches to theatre and performance in the time of global health crisis. We are excited to welcome Komunidad X who will be our guide in this platform as the official partner of JFM in the Philippines.

Double swerte because my paper for IFTR conference 2021 in Ireland is about international collaboration specifically discussing APAF collaboration. Ang galing ng ecosystem ano? Sanga-sanga lang. Pag nanghingi ka ng data, may magbibigay na generous na mga tao.

Hindi lahat ay may option na maghintay ng vaccine para mabuhay sa disiplina natin. This is the work so werk werk werk together tayo.
