BRAVE NEW WORKS AT CCP


A series of festivals billed as Brave New Works 09 features ground-breaking performances, exhibitions, screenings at the Cultural Center of the Philippines from June to July 2009. The events are part of the celebration of CCP’s 40th Anniversary.

The festivals, which exemplify the CCP mandate of encouraging and showcasing original Filipino works, usher in a deluge of provocative new works from poets, playwrights, choreographers, composers, visual artists and independent filmmakers. Six festivals converge to showcase productions in poetry-in-performance, modern theater, contemporary dance, new symphonic music, painting, sculpture, installation, multimedia and digital feature film.

On June 10, June 24, and July 1 at 6:00 p.m., oral tradition, protest poetry, and lesbian-gay-bisexual-transvestite (LGBT) works top bill the WordJam! Spoken Word Festival to be held at the Barbariba Grill & Bar in Trellis 2, CCP Complex. A storytelling session for children on July 8 at 8:00 a.m. at the CCP Main Theater Lobby also forms part of the festival. The storytelling session is open to the public. WordJam! is undertaken by the CCP Literary Arts Division.

The Virgin Labfest, a festival of new plays (untried, untested, unpublished and unstaged) by emerging and well-known playwrights, directors and actors will be held from June 23-July 5. The event is a joint venture of CCP, Tanghalang Pilipino and the Writers’ Bloc, Inc. with the support of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA). Now on its fifth year, the festival has earned a solid reputation for its exciting and provocative line-up of one-act plays from playwrights both young and old.

Filipino and international dance artists meet at the Wifibody Independent Contemporary Dance Festival 4 from June 25 to July 5, and is presented by the World Dance Alliance-Philippines, Choreographers’ Network, CCP, and the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA). Wifibody features a choreographers’ competition, galas, dance on film, workshops, among many other activities that encourage new talent and experimentation.

The 13 young artists will be formally honored and their group exhibition will be simultaneously opened on July 9. The awardees are Buen Calubayan, Christina Dy, Don Djerassi Dalmacio, Patty Eustaquio, Kawayan de Guia, Winner Jumalon, Raquel de Loyola, Raya Martin, Iggy Rodriguez, Don Salubayba, Jaypee Samson, Pamela Yan, and MM Yu.
