Tanghalang Pilipino (TP), the resident theater company of the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP), announced its September line-up of productions for ‘PangsamanTanghalan’.
Last August, TP started PangsamanTanghalan, the online streaming of its theater productions, as a response to the Covid19 pandemic, which led to the closure of all CCP public venues and cancellations of all CCP shows.
The August launch of PangsamangTanghalan coincided with the annual Buwan ng Wika celebrations.
Members of the Actors Company bring to life a timely and informative tale in “May Giyera sa Katawan ni Mark” by Dr. Luis Gatmaitan, adapted for the production by Nono Pardalis.
As the title suggests, Mark’s body will try and resist foreign bacteria entering his body. Visuals for the antibodies and bacteria will be produced by Anino Shadowplay Collective.
TP releases a special medley of songs for the concert “Handa, Awit.” Nar Cabico reprises his role in a special performance of songs from “ZsaZsa Zaturrnah: Ze Muzikal,” the award-winning play by librettist Chris Martinez.
Cabico sings the most memorable songs composed by Vince De Jesus with Cabico’s own arrangement, engineered by TJ Ramos, and directed by Carlitos Siguion-Reyna. This concert is on September 16 at 6 pm, which also happens to be Cabico’s birthday.
“Bagong Tagpo” shows the new film collaboration between TP and Voyage Studios. Directors Missy Maramara and Chuck Gutierrez, along with assistant director and Actors Company member Antonette Go, film an excerpt of Anton Juan’s Centennial Literary Prize winner, “The Price of Redemption.”
The “Price of Redemption” is a haunting play that examines the parallelism between the Philippine society during the American period and martial law years through the lens of artists, freedom fighters, and traitors. The production features the TP Actors Company’s first ensemble performance on screen for this year.
“The Price of Redemption” streams on the eve of the anniversary of the declaration of martial law, Sept. 20, at 6 pm.
For this month’s iKAPWA workshop classes, TP Artistic Director Fernando Josef shares how an actor can adapt in performing for online theater productions in “SArili para sa BAYan” (SABAY-KAPWA).
Meanwhile, theater director and former TP Artistic Director Dennis Marasigan teaches a special class for aspiring directors for online productions and performances through the “Kamalayang Pilipino.”
Both classes begin on Sept. 19 and run until Oct. 4, conducted during weekends.
Finally, to conclude the CCP Arts Education – TP partnership for the month, Gawad Buhay Award-winning dance artist JM Cabling discusses movements and techniques he used in “Lam-ang.” He will tackle “conveying narratives and emotion in choreography.” The class streams on Sept. 25 at 10 am.
