The Creative Industry

As you know, I decided to change the thread title and yes this thread is about our country's creative industry which is one of the strongest and a major contributor to The Philippine economy.

Here are some of the topics we can discuss,

Visual Arts - Illustrations, Paintings, etc.

Communication Arts - Print, Graphic Design, Advertising, Photography, etc.

Performing Arts - Theatre, Ballet, Musicals, Opera, etc.

Music - Popular Music, etc.

Television - TV Shows, Cinemas, Cartoons / Animation, etc.

Next year ay magbabalik ang "Phantom of the Opera" sa Solaire Theater.

Di ko naman kayo pinipigilan na manood.
Big budget production syempre yun dahil international theater company.

Pero sana i-try din natin paminsan-minsan ang local theater companies.
Para naman magkaroon ng trabaho ang mga local artists.

Tutal, mas mura naman ang tickets ng local productions
kaysa sa mga imported shows.

Originally scheduled for 2017,
the new CCP Black Box Theater will finally open in 2019.
Quote:
Coinciding with its 50th anniversary celebration next year,
the CCP recently announced the much-awaited opening
of the new black box theater.

"I know, in every press conference,
I announce that the black box theater will be opened
but now it's finally pushing through, "
Chris Millado, CCP president and artistic director, recently announced.
Without going into details,
he said the delays were caused by the release of building permits.

The current Black Box Theater (i.e. Tanghalang Huseng Batute) is in CCP Level 1 :

Quote:
Tanghalang Huseng Batute:
The venue is a black box style theater with variable playing area
ideal for improvisational works and experimental productions.

It is the smallest CCP performance venue
which can accommodate a maximum of 240 audiences,
divided into two levels; the lower/studio and upper/gallery levels.

Importante rin ang tiny theaters
dahil hindi naman lahat ng plays ay dudumugin ng tao.
Mas OK ang maliit pero puno,
kaysa malaking theater pero walang tao.


=======
The CCP Black Box Theater (Tanghalang Huseng Batute),
with an average capacity of 200,
is being utilized by the "Tanghalang Pilipino" theater group.

But for plays that can draw more viewers,
like the staging of "Manila Notes" on Nov 30 to Dec 16,
they use the CCP Little Theater (Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino):
Quote:


Adapted from Tokyo Notes —which was inspired by Yasujiro Ozu’s film “Tokyo Story”—
the story of Manila Notes takes place in the lobby of an art museum in Manila sometime in the near future.
A major war is being waged in Europe and many paintings have been moved to the various cities in Asia.

In front of such paintings, family members, friends and lovers continue their fragmentary conversations
on taking care of their aging parents, inheritance, future careers, and love, among others.

With the backdrop of a distant war,
the play clearly portrays how Filipinos live their everyday lives,
which reveal a whole range of problem and crisis of our modern society.

Honest Review of MANILA NOTES:

This is not an "adaptation".
It is just a Tagalog "translation" of the original Japanese play.

There are many details
that are just far from the realities of Manila.

The story occurs in the near future;
around 20 years from now.
Europe is at war, and all their paintings are being distributed
around museums in Asia for temporary safekeeping.
The Vermeers are sent to Manila
(Hmmm. Kung minor painters seguro, pwede pa.
Pero Vermeers entrusted to Manila?)

Another subplot:
A lonely housewife is left home alone everyday
when her husband goes to work and her son goes to school.
So she passes time at the park.
(Hmmm. Park in Manila?)

These stories of the citizens are more plausible in an affluent city.

Anyway, just wanted to manage your expectations.
It is better to watch this play thinking that the collection of stories happens
in a rich developed city like Tokyo or Seoul or Taipei.

Because Manila is not yet at that level.

=========
My solution to make it a believable Manila:
(1) Incorporate traffic problems in the play;
(2) The lonely housewife does not pass time in a park,
instead she watches TV all day.
(3) The visiting sister from Negros province
should have brought "Pasalubong".
Bakit walang "Pasalubong"?!?


=======
This is still Tokyo, not Manila.
Watch it as a Tagalog translation only,
not as a local adaptation.

Don’t you think it’s high time that a School of Performing Arts for Dancing, Singing & Acting is built in every provinces not as a Summer Class but a proper School with Curriculum...

Dancing - Ballet/ Jazz/ Street/ Folk... Singing - Classical/ Theatre/ Kundiman/ Pop... Acting - Stage Directions, Stage Lighting and Sounds, Stage Designs/ Costumes/ Hair and Make Up... I have suggested previously on the Manila Metropolitan Theatre Thread about this proposals...

A Regional Film School where young Filipinos can learn Directing, Cinematography and Editing from National Artists... Films in their Native Language, Filipino, English... Screen Play Classes Conducted from Ricky Lee, Jose Javier Reyes...

Public and Private Schools should encourage Students to Play Musical Instruments and Learn to Read Music Scores/ Sheets...

Regional School of Fine Arts and Folk Arts... Classes held by National Artists and Manlilikha ng Bayans.. supported by TESDA and Escuela Talyer...

Paintings - Angono in Rizal

Sculpture - Cordilleras in the North, Paete in Laguna

Religious Sculptures - Baetis in Pampanga, Paete in Laguna

Embroidery - Lumban in Laguna, Taal in Batangas

Shoe Making - Marikina

Weaving - Ilocos, Cordilleras, etc

Mat Weaving/ Basket Weaving

Metal Working and Glass Blowing and Pottery

Apprenticeships from Maestros de Obreros, Masters of their Crafts, National Artists, Manlilikha by Bayans... No reasons for the Arts to be labelled as Dying...

Previously seen the U.K. Tour at the Palace Theatre in Manchester in 2001 starring post pregnancy Ima Castro, Street Boys, Jon Jon Briones and bless Lee Mead for lifting a post partum Kim...

I had seen Sunset Boulevard Revival English National Opera at the London Coliseum in 2016... aging recluse Glenn Close and very hot Michael Xavier in his trunks people were swooning... Apparently the Grand Staircase was not revived... as I saw a unadorned simple winding stairs..

I saw Here Lies Love at the Dorfman Theatre National Theatre in 2014 with Mark Bautista, Natalie Mendoza, Gia Macuja and very hot bespectacled Dean John Wilson... bumped into Ms Liza Macuja, her mother and her Elizalde daughter... Ms Macuja denied receiving help from Madame Imelda Marcos... took some Selfie with them... Mark Bautista blessed him did not even bother greeting his fans outside waiting in the winter cold...

I saw the Doctor Faustus at the Duke of York Theatre in 2016.. with Kit Harrington Of the Games of Thrones... Gory and Bloody and Mental... ending with Kit in his Tighty Whitey soaked in fake blood... He was small in stature but the curly hair you just would like to snip and keep as a memento... He was very happy to sign autographs with I gladly take and have selfies I declined he was very puzzled...

London Westend Tickets had gone up to 60 to 80 pounds or higher from the 29 pounds I paid originally back in 2001... I just watched the Live Cinema Broadcast for Angels in America back in 2017 to see Andrew Garfield and Hunk Russel Tovey naked on the stage (seen him in history Boys he was twinky then)...vip cinema tickets were 20 pounds and theatre tickets were about 23 pounds because it’s the National but tickets were sold out...

Manila Productions (Boulevard Production as in Roxas Boulevard) of Westend and Broadway Hits are costly and out of reach of students and employees...

If Schools for Performing Arts will flourish and the Boulevard will have at least 15 to 20 theatres and capacity of 800 to 1,600 seats... in 20 to 30 years perhaps...

Imagined the lost theatres of Escolta converted into stages for plays and musicals... Ate Guy and Ate Vi in competing Stage Productions (ala Dames Judy Dench, Helen Mirren, Maggie Smith or Sirs Ian Mackellen, Patrick Stewart, Kenneth Branagh) and Ms Lea Salonga and others in Stage Musicals nightly and matinees?

Direction of Philippine Wood Carving Industry
(Part 2 of 2)


(1) The Cordillera and (2) Palawan will be supported by tourism revenue (i.e. souvenirs).
Notice the "Tribal" style of these contemporary sculptures
compared to the "Westernized" sculptures of Paete and Betis.

Palawan souvenirs :

History of Palawan woodcarving tradition:
Quote:
"We want to preserve the traditional carving techniques of our ancestors,” says Oten. “Sometimes I invent a new pattern but usually I follow the designs of uncle Simpio, as he is my teacher.”

According to archaeologists studying the Tabon Cave in the municipality of Quezon, Pala’wan culture can be traced back 50,000 years and they are among the first people known to have inhabited Southeast Asia.

Their native script, or surat, as they call it is one of only three pre-hispanic scripts still in use in the Philippines today. The lettering on the paraw’s stern (pictured below) reads “Balatik“, “Orion” (constellation) in English.

Beautiful! While we have the talent, it's sad that most statues in the Philippines look like gingerbread people cast in cement. Just look at the statue at your nearest plaza.

This imagery documents the original Filipino psyche
before it became obsessed with western features (e.g. white skin, pointed nose).
Quote:
"We, Filipinos, have always tended to accept that we were the passive receiver of artistic stimuli from abroad.
This collection proves that the Philippines was as much a giver.”

“The Department of Tourism will be investing in the promotion of cultural tourism in the years to come.
We’re doing it not just because we need to expand our tourism products,
... Cultural tourism is telling the world our narrative.” Puyat said.
