LOVE: THIS IS NOT YET A MUSICAL

August 2013. February 2014

Sipat Lawin Ensemble’s LOVE: This Is Not Yet A Musical a.k.a. LOVENot a.k.a. The Biggest Crowd-sourced Play a.k.a. The Play With The Most Number of Playwrights is a Guinness-bound large-scale production launching in August 2013, then coming back for a re-run in February 2014. Aiming to document present day thoughts and sentiments about all kinds and types of love, the production calls on anyone and everyone to contribute through all kinds of media: online tweets and statuses, to on-site performance, poetry reading, short films, dance, jokes, what have you.

LOVENot is made up of four independently themed open mic/platform mini-events spread out from February to June aimed at generating contributions, leading to the main event in August. The full run will be an inter-active/ participatory play/performance – inter-media and multimedia – devised from the entries that will have flooded in.

Why this big and ambitious? Love big. Love one. Love all. Because a play about love simply refuses to be small.

KARNABAL: DEVISED WORKS FESTIVAL

featuring Sipat Lawin’s Reenactments and 1984

November 2013

Karnabal is the Philippines’ first open call festival of devised works—performances that emerge from mediums other than a written script—creating new possibilities of meaning-making in performance.

Reenactments

“Reenactments” is a compilation of performance pieces about recent national events that have been forgotten by the public. Devised from snippets/raw files of news footages and popular media, private investigations, and one-on-one interviews, it will explore the possibilities of documentary theater alongside actor-spectator negotiations.

1984

Intimate, 50-seater multimedia performance, featuring an all-Sipat Lawin Players cast in collaboration with writer Vlademir Gonzales, “1984” is a devise-work adaptation of George Orwell’s eerily accurate description of a dystopian totalitarian future in his classic modernist novel, 1984.

1984
