Asian Performing Arts Farm (APAF) is a development initiative under the Tokyo Festival that offers opportunities for artists in Asia to elevate their creative practice through mutual exchange, and expand their presence beyond national and cultural boundaries. The initiative was launched in 2002 as the Asian Performing Arts Festival with a view to promoting culture through artistic exchange between Asian regions. In 2016, it changed its name to “Asian Performing Arts Forum,” serving as a venue that brings young artists together. In 2018, Junnosuke Tada assumed the role of Director, taking over from former-Producer Satoshi Miyagi, who led the program for ten years. In 2019, APAF underwent a major remodeling, changing “forum” to “farm,” with the aim of providing “rich soil” for the next generation of artists to grow in an increasingly globalized age. The new logo, redesigned for 2020, adopts a free and flowing design.
Ang masaya sa PETA people ay kung gaano sila ka-fun sa work at sa rooftop cast party ay ganon din sila sa roundtable discussion. Grabeng humility to assess yourself as individuals and as a company. Sulong sa experimentation!
Ito yung pa-activity namin ni Norbs Portales. Yung una kung ano nami-miss nila sa teatro at yung pangalawa ay kung may time capsule kaming ibabaon sa parking lot ng PETA, anong ilalagay nilang advice/tip/question para sa future generations ng PETA artist-teachers na maghuhukay nito.
Maraming salamat sa pag-imbita sa akin dito, Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA)!

Jonathan Bollen and the ADSA committee, thank you for your work and for answering all my questions re. ADSA since March.
Forever grateful to Layeta Pinzon Bucoy for being so patient with our process (no internet, no camera, no stagehands, no motivation, 5-10 hours of phone call every month, during the lockdown and pandemic, etc.).
Shoutout to our MonoVlog followers and our ka-MonoVlog (Sining Banwa, Tanghalang Pilipino, Icebag Online)! Mabuhay kayo!
P.S. Layeta was my CO-ACTOR in this MonoVlog. Hahahaha! Iba siya!
