Superproxy time! Honored to share the recalibration of our undergraduate theatre program, the collaborations of the DSCTA, and my 15-month experience of creating and reshaping the MonoVlog with Layeta Pinzon Bucoy. Kahilera ang mga bigatin sa 18 June. Newbie po me. Salamat po, Dean Ami Ramolete sa opportunity.
We created a Pinoy panel entitled “Surviving Critical Conditions: Filipinos Putting Up a Fight amidst Pandemonium over a Global Pandemic” for the Inter-Asia Cultural Studies Society Conference 2021: Culture in the Pandemic Age in Singapore.

Grateful for the opportunity to work with colleagues from the UP Department of Speech Communication and Theatre Arts (DSCTA). Coincidentally, we are all former fellows of the Asian Graduate Student Fellowship at the Asia Research Institute (ARI) of the National University of Singapore (NUS). Lahat din kami fan ng bakuna. Akalain mo yun?
Salamat, Oscar Tantoco Serquiña for leading this panel! Salamat din, Charles Erize Ladia and Junesse Crisostomo sa comments, tawanan, cramming, chikahan, at health tips. Buy 1 take 3 po kami sa publication sana. Sana rin magtuluy-tuloy at lumaki pa ang ganitong writing group sa department.
The deadline for registration is on 16 July 2021. You may register here: https://bit.ly/3gDmlRv
Experienced another different format of an international conference! On-demand presentation na tayo o! Parang tv series lang. hahaha.
Salamat sa inspirasiyon mula sa VLF lockdown edition sa kanilang paggamit ng “KAPIT”. Nagamit ang kapit para mapakita ang gaps, possibilities, at innovations (di ko na ma-Tagalog) sa community, pedagogy, at performance making sa panahon ng viral videos at nakamamatay na virus.
Iginapang ang paper presentation na ito habang nagre-recover ako sa virus. Ahuhuhu. Ang hirap po, opo. Hindi pantay ang resources at nakakaapekto rin ang pandemic response ng mga gobyerno sa ganitong mga conference, ano po.
Maaari pong mag-purchase ng conference pass dito: https://www.sdea-tac.org/
Kasama rin sa conference ang Team ADMU nina Laura Cabochan! Go go go!
P.S. Nakaka-miss ang palipat-lipat na venue para sa conference na parang mga klase lang sa College pero dito sa conference ay unlimited kain ng kung anek-anek na tinapay, cheese, prutas, gulay at kung ano-anong dip na basta sinasawsawan ko na lang. Wala rin akong conference bag, pamaypay, notebook, ballpen at ID. Mababaw lang naman po ang gusto naming souvenir!!!! Tsaka yung pasyal eh. Akala ko makikita ko ulit ang Merlion at NUS.
I will be presenting a performance-lecture of the MonoVlog at the Magdalena:On:Line 2021, Magdalena Online Festival.
So happy to be invited in this festival by my good friend, Elizabeth de Roza! Looking forward to the new encounters with women theatre and performance makers
I will be sharing the journey of the MonoVlog from Facebook Live to Kumu. Hey, Layeta Pinzon Bucoy!
Will be sharing how I shape my content using my background as a performance maker and an assistant professor in UP Diliman.
Masaya na ang moderator ay ang aking BFF na si Eric Villanueva Dela Cruz. JV Can will talk about his journey to bronze experience and the monetization side of Kumu. Emmanuel Feliciano will talk about content-making and #edutainment
Umaaraw, umuulan sa pandemya pero tuloy ang usapang teatro. Buhay pa tayo! Got accepted in 2 conferences in Singapore:”MonoVlog as a Protest from Home Movement” for IACSS.
