THE enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) in Metro Manila has hit its 60-day mark. While selected industries will slowly begin to resume operations as the metropolis transitions to a modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ), live performances and other activities which entail large gatherings remain postponed. Still, over the past two months, singers, musicians, actors, directors, and writers have collaborated to raise money for the benefit of those who have been badly affected by the enhanced community quarantine. And they are already planning for the future.
BROKEN bits of fishing boats drift on the sea before making landfall on the beach in Panglao, Bohol. The bangka are used for transportation between islands, by fishermen, and people taking leisure trips. As time goes by, parts of the fishing boats wear out and come off, some after rainy season storms.

WHEN COVID-19 started to spread across the globe early this year, big public events in the arts industry were either postponed or canceled. As much of the world went under quarantine, the arts moved online with performers, musicians, theater and entertainment companies offering shows via streaming. This led international art fairs, such as this year’s edition of Art Basel Hong Kong and Art Dubai, to cancel the physical fairs but to push through via their respective virtual viewing platforms.
IN LIGHT of the COVID-19 outbreak and enhanced community quarantine, the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) has realigned its artistic programs with the aim of protecting lives and livelihoods, and deliver content to Filipinos on alternative platforms.
ALREADY a hotbed of the new and cutting edge in theater, the 2020 Virgin Labfest theater festival does not disappoint this year. Instead of cancelling outright in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, the festival will stage its new “untied and untested” plays online for the first time. The use of green screens, recorded material, and meeting platforms are all being considered in this unique staging of the festival.
Whether it be a workout session, studying or working, or enjoying a good book, activities gain a different vibe when set to music. Here’s another list of artists – this time from across Europe – to consider adding to your daily routine playlists.
THE Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) is making HD and archival recordings from its Cultural Content Digital Archives available to the public through CCP Online.
It’s almost a month into the enhanced community quarantine in Luzon. Since public events like music festivals and concerts have been canceled, we take our music fix on endless playlist repeats on Spotify and return to favorite music videos and live performances streamed on social media. As we endure another two-week quarantine extension indoors, here are some Nordic artists and albums, as well as performances by more familiar singers (think Neil Sedaka and Josh Groban) recorded at their homes to check out and give an interesting spin to your “quarantunes.”
Think about our world during the enhanced community quarantine without the arts – no movies, no music, no online museums and galleries, no dancing, no designers making apps like TikTok or Houseparty, no free online concerts, no online art classes, no food shows, no YouTube, no theater plays and musicals available.
HOLY WEEK celebrations will commence on April 5 with the Catholic faithful expected to participate in their homes rather than in churches.
Cinemas, theaters, concert halls, and museums have all closed their doors since Luzon was placed on enhanced community quarantine due to the COVID-19 pandemic two weeks ago. Show openings, gigs, workshops, regional art festivals and conferences have either been postponed or canceled.

BOOKS, shows, and songs are not just words, they are ways of telling stories.
IT ALL began in 2007 when bookstore founders Andrew Yap and Jacqueline Ng established a 500-square-meter bookstore called BookXcess where remainder books from international distributors were sold. It was located in a neighborhood mall in Malaysia, “where you hardly see any customer walk pass,” as Ms. Ng described.
