Tanghalang Pilipino and Japan Foundation, join hands for the production of “MANILA NOTES”

Tanghalang Pilipino (TP) along with the Japan Foundation, Manila (JFM), in partnership with the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) present "Manila Notes", as part of TP 32nd season production from November 30 to December 16, 2018, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, at 3PM and 8PM, at the CCP Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino (Little Theater).

Adapted from Tokyo Notes, written by internationally acclaimed Japanese playwright and director Oriza Hirata. The play is one of the most critically acclaimed works of Hirata, which has been translated into 13 languages for productions in many cities around the world.

To make sure that the Japanese material communicates well with the local Filipino audience, the Palanca Hall of Fame writer Rody Vera has been working with Hirata on the adaptation together with the twenty (20) leading Filipino actors. Hirata introduced to the actors his acting style called “contemporary colloquial theater theory,” which is entirely different from Western a…

What's inside the Dressing Room?

The 43rd Season of Dulaang UP definitely has a great line up of Plays. For their second offering , Dulaang UP chose to stage a play about the theater, a 1997 Japanese play called "The Dressing Room" by Shimizu Kunio.
As DUP usually does, they would be staging in parallel both an English and a Filipino version of this play. The English version was written by Chiori Miyagawa, as adapted from the original English translation by John Gillespie. The Filipino translation is by multiple Palanca award-winning playwright Nicolas Pichay.
Always making sure that they push limits, Dulaang UP also pushes the envelope further by innovating on the casting as well. The original play involved four actresses playing the four actress characters. The English version will stay faithful to this casting. To put a twist in Filipino version, however, the four actress characters will all be played by male actors. I believe this is a great way to kind of put things into perspective.

Talking About Home Loans

Knowing which home loan to choose is not always easy. Homebuyers who research various types of loans likely know of loans that may suit their need. Because there are many loan options, it may be useful to work with a mortgage broker.
Some homebuyers choose to obtain financing from a credit union, bank or mortgage company. However, these lenders provide traditional financing, and rarely offer loans for people with credit problems.

Comparing home loans is an important step that should not be overlooked. With this said, brokers provide a valuable service that saves time. Online mortgage brokers will locate at least three suitable loans. Brokers email loan offers to the homebuyer. Upon receipt of the offers, buyers must make a side-by-side comparison and pick the best loan offer and some also tries to help you avoidbad credit loans in Tampa.

Fortunately, there is a multitude of home loans available. Thus, it is possible for practically anyone to obtain a mor…

The Natural Way to Feel More Empowered As a Woman

Gone are the days when the "male chauvinist" society had women as far inferior as men—very dependent and submissive to whatever the latter commanded. Women today are not just regarded as homemakers, but nation-builders as well. Beyond the confines of their houses, they, too, can make a big difference––be it in the economic, social or political arena.

From being a household queen to boardroom’s rockstar, women run on very hectic and active schedules everyday. So imagine the strength they have to withstand the daily grinds, not to mention the stress and pressure they have to endure just to fulfill the duties bestowed upon them.

Nevertheless, they’re no “Wonder Woman” at all, nor our very own heroine “Darna” so as not to feel exhausted and tired from chores or work. They’re also humans, who need to pause for a break from being the jack-of-all-trades.

It’s time to celebrate women empowerment and influence with the gift of beauty and wellness that they truly deserve. What a bet…
