Course Description:

GYM FOR THE HEART Performance Workshop. Facilitator: Meila Romero-Payawal.

A “Gym For the Heart,” the Sipat Lawin Curriculum uses a holistic orientation in theater-making. It focuses on balancing the individual’s thinking, feeling and willing towards developing an effective communicator and a responsible, pro-active social being.

The Performance Workshop course is a new exploration in creating new approaches and new works for the theater. It is a platform for self-expression, language and kinesthetic skills development, confidence-enhancement, creation, collaboration and self-empowerment.

The PERFORMANCE WORKSHOP is open to anyone interested. Beginners, professionals, and even those without previous theater background are welcome.

DIRECTING LABORATORY. Facilitator: Jk Anicoche

A course for aspiring theater-makers. The workshop focuses on script analysis, rehearsal and performance techniques for conventional and unconventional spaces, from classical to experimental pieces. The Laboratory is a platform for directors to discover new styles and techniques while developing an in-depth understanding of theater’s collaborative process.
