CMC – Teatro Pawan Artistic Director Erolle Linus T. Miranda has participated in a focused group discussion on a blueprint for an academy of Philippine theater. The said FGD was organized by the NCCA Committee on Dramatic Arts in partnership with the Youth Advocates Through Theater Arts (YATTA) on Dec. 3, 2022 via Zoom Cloud Meeting.
In 2020, the NCCA Committee on Dramatic Arts in partnership with the Youth Advocates Through Theater Arts (YATTA) convened Tampok Sabadulaan, a series of online webinars that sought to engage theater artists and cultural workers in sharing their vision and ideas in relation to the establishment of an Academy of Philippine Theater. Moreover, in 2021, a research project HULMAHAN spearheaded by our esteemed theater leader Lutgardo “Gardy” Labad further consolidated these ideas and led to the drafting of a blueprint for establishing an envisioned Academy of Philippine Theater.
The process consisted of research methodologies like surveys, questionnaires, the study of related literature, webinars, focus group discussions, and interviews leading to a consolidated compendium of insights and recommendations on the directional trajectory and nature of the academy.
The blueprint articulates the following thematic issues and concerns: Rationale, Strategic Directions and Policies, Programs and Course Offerings, Market and Finance Study, Organizational Operations, and Architectural Design Guidelines.
On its 9th year as a student theater guild, the organization brings another year with the theme: 𝗖𝗠𝗖 𝗧𝗲𝗮𝘁𝗿𝗼 𝗮𝘆 𝗕𝘂𝗵𝗮𝘆! 𝗕𝘂𝗵𝗮𝘆 𝗮𝗻𝗴 𝗦𝗶𝗻𝗶𝗻𝗴!
