THE Langgam Performance Troupe (LPT), a contemporary performance company and research lab established in 2012, has unveiled its acting workshop series designed to enhance the creativity of participants which could be used on stage and off.
The acting workshop series consists of three distinct but interrelated modules: the Personal Spectacle (Nov. 10, 17, 24, and Dec. 1); Bodies as One (Feb. 2, 9, 16, and 23, 2019); and, Subjectifying the Object (May 4, 11, 18, and 25, 2019).
The workshop program comes on the heels of the return of Jenny Logico-Cruz, Langgam founder and artistic director, from the United Kingdom where she took up her Master’s Degree in London’s Theater and Performance: Viewing, Making, and Writing at the University of Roehampton. She graduated as a Distinction Awardee.
“The workshop series forms part of LPT’s education program. The three modules were developed over a period of two years through the examination of existing performance practices,” Ms. Logico-Cruz said. “Our acting workshops focus on the collective, cooperative, creative, and, above all, collaborative,” she added.
The first module, Personal Spectacle, goes beyond the introduction to the art of solo performance to a more experimental laboratory.
The second module, Bodies as One, incorporates LPT’s own ensemble work processes, experiments with the movement and physical possibilities of the ensemble.
The third module, Subjectifying the Object, reconsiders a performer’s interaction and relationship with an object to elevate the status of the latter to become a character or a persona of its own.
The classes will run from 1-5 p.m. at the Langgam headquarters in Taguig City with a culminating performance at the end of the workshop. For workshop fees and other details, call 0917-548-1985 or e-mail
