ONLINE CLASSROOM SERIES. This episode is about my week 2 of teaching performance via Zoom. I talk about how we turn our personal spaces into our own theater at home, how we make sense of our limited and liminal spaces, and how we use available technology in performance making.
We invited James Harvey Estrada, director of “Ostrich!! Hayupang Die-Bow-Ken” (Japan) and co-director of “Cave” (South Korea), to talk about healing, rituals, and building relationships in international collaboration during the global health crisis.
Sari Saysay, a community theatre artist in Bicol, talks about the journey of the MonoVlog in their region and the future of Sining Banwa in doing community theatre in the time of the global health crisis.
My reflections on the previous semester, how these musing are shaping my course packs to include wrestling, theatre ecosystem, accessibility of resources for audiences and for artists, and what we can learn from digital theatre.
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:
