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. Will be a presenting in the panel “Surviving Critical Conditions: Filipinos Putting Up a Fight amidst Pandemonium over a Global Pandemic” with my DSCTA colleagues and ka-fellow sa NUS-ARI Oscar Tantoco Serquiña (the mother goose of the team), Charles Erize Ladia (kabagang sa pagka-coordinator), Junesse Crisostomo (kabagang sa Social Drama).”Kapit: E-mergen(t/cy) Practical Experiments and Temporary Communities in Theatre” for SDEA.

1 & 5 Feb Tawid sa Harbour

Tawid sa Harbour in Kumu (and in podcast soon!)

I have been using Kumu as my playground in testing ideas (for class, course pack, paper, proposals, etc.) and in creating MonoVlogs. Grateful to friends, strangers, and even bots for being my fabulous collaborators.

For National Arts Month, I have set my intentions for my research and creative work.

Here are my offerings this week:

1 Feb

Isang Taong Walang Teatro (Chika-Tambay)

“The art of acting consists in keeping people from coughing”… Literally and figuratively in the time of COVID-19

5 FebSapi (MonoVlog)

A seance to recall the spirit of the dead theatre

Pasok sa KUMU. Collab tayo.
