Audire, dare to listen what you hear.

We rarely heard or seen a one woman act show now a days, and if there is one, it should be something interesting and actors must be really good at it. Artist Playground on its 3rd production is back with “Audire”, starring veteran stage Actress Angelina Kanapi, it’s under the direction of Jeffrey Camanag.

It is an experimental performance that showcases the process of artistic creations, inventions and discoveries, images and sounds are biggest part of it since the artist interact with it through her soul and conveyed its messages to the audience.
At first I thought there is no story at all, Kanapi acting comes natural along with his changing mode of artistically acting in one scene in a sort trash room, through those things scattered she narrate one by one her story of childhood, as a mother and the struggles of growing up. One notable Kanapi good to this play is her humor, yes she can make you laugh. It is not a typical play I must say, not even a testimonial to called for, but …

Keep the flame burning: Mga Buhay na Apoy Theater Review.

Kanakan's "Mga Buhay na Apoy" deserve its award in the Don Carlos Palanca Memorial Awards. A literary masterpiece, every line delivered by the actors is a portal to the world that is simply Kanakan. Just by simply listening to the lines delivered while masterfully accompanied by the music of Diwa De Leon, it's like you are being transported i. the mystical world of Palaw'an. The text was very rich and colorful. As the director, his vision was made even better by the wonderful performance of the ensemble and the grade A execution of the technical and production staff.
I suggest however that you don't close your eyes, for the set design itself is a marvel to look at. The giant tree in the middle of the stage is like a gateway waiting to be opened. The luncheon table was set with different chairs, each chairs we're like a representation of each of the characters. You get the festive mood the set is trying to send off, which is a good contrast to the dark secr…
