The beauty of the Filipino language takes centerstage as Tanghalang Pilipino (TP) releases performances that are based on Philippine literary works, in celebration of Buwan ng Wika. These performances will be streamed online under ‘PansamanTanghalan’, found at the official TP Youtube channel.
‘Pamanang Pahina‘ consists of dramatic readings of Filipino children’s books from OMF Library-Hiyas, which will be performed by members of the Actors Company, with Anino Shadowplay Collective providing the striking visuals. Starting off the storytelling series is “Ang Bagong Kaibigan ni Bing Butiki” written by Yna Reyes (with Illustration by Jason Moss) and adapted for this performance by Nono Pardalis. This episode, about an encompassing friendship between unlikely characters, is now available online.
CCP Online is featuring TP’s ‘Nang Dalawin ng Pag-Ibig si Juan Tamad’. Adapted for stage by Rody Vera, with direction by Jonathan Tadioan and featuring the TP Actors Company, “Nang Dalawin ng Pag-ibig si Juan Tamad” was originally performed at the CCP in February 2018 as part of TP’s 31st Season. It was also the Philippine entry in the 7th World Theater Congress held in Moscow, Russia in 2018. ‘Nang Dalawin ng Pag-ibig si Juan Tamad’ can be streamed at the official CCP Youtube channel, starting August 8, 3PM.
‘Bagong Tagpo’ provides an opportunity for the audiences to see how a TP production is being developed. “Heneral Rizal“, a monologue written by Floro Quibuyen, is the first production under ‘Bagong Tagpo’. Featuring a commanding performance from TP Artistic Director Nanding Josef, under the direction of Chuck Gutierrez, this little-known tale of National Hero Jose Rizal’s valiant fraternal half, Paciano, will be premiering in Cinemalaya 16: Stream Consciousness. This marks the first collaboration between TP and the largest Philippine Independent Film Festival. ‘Heneral Rizal’ can be streamed in ‘PangsamanTanghalan’, starting August 16.
The second installment of ‘Handa, Awit’ features inspiring songs from two landmark musicals from TP. Acclaimed artists Mark Bautista, Gian Magdangal, Cris Villonco, Arman Ferrer, and Noel Rayos reunite and relive their roles from “Noli Me Tangere: The Musical” and “Walang Sugat” for this online concert. Cap off Buwan ng Wika celebrations through their performances by streaming the concert on August 30.
