The Tanghalang Pilipino celebrated its 25th Theater Season with an anthology of the best stage productions billed as EYEBALL: New Visions in Philippine Theater at The Cultural Center of the Philippines last January 13 - February 12, 2012.
The must-see show of the moment is Layeta Bucoy's Doc Resureccion: Gagamutin Ang Bayan. It was directed by Tuxqs Rutaqio. The writing of Bucoy won first prize on the Don Carlos Palanca Awards and was staged by different theater groups all around the country. Back to back with the Doc Resureccion: Gagamutin Ang Bayan is Carlo Pacolor Garcia’s “Bakit Wala nang Nagtatagpo sa Philcoa Oberpas,” a mini-musical comedy about the different characters that occupy the pedestrian overpass.
In July of 2010, the poet V.I.S. de Veyra posted a blog essay on the art of Marcel Antonio titled “Blue Funk’d Stories: The Expanding Art of Marcel Antonio” (read here) and coined the phrase-tag Blue Funk Erotica for Antonio’s art. De Veyra described Blue Funk Erotica as 1) unsmiling faces-derived figurative drama (primarily portraiture, then), 2) replete of appropriations or art-historical quotes, 3) suggestive (but only suggestive) of a narrative, 4) quasi-rebellious towards rigid allusions and painting titles’ guidance, 5) unpainterly expressionist, 6) of an in-a-trance mood as against a happy one, and 7) conscriptive of the painting viewer as peeper. “This erotica should stay around and keep us entranced,” the poet-critic wrote, “being not so much one that tickles the groin as a kind that promotes the understanding that every face, gesture, object, color, and shape is a secret sex object and clandestine true story waiting to be told.” But also debunking a previous simplistic tag on Antonio’s art as “narrative expressionist,” de Veyra wrote: “In Antonio’s case, his blue funkism's ‘de-expression’, or ‘dis-expression’ and narrative confusion through the mannerisms of narrative imagery and titling, seems to be a produce of a Russian Formalist narrative bent to ‘defamiliarize’ images and shapes towards a higher enigma. Thus his refusal to ‘express’.”
Hello people! I am excited to pop in to share with you my another creations for Valentine Day! I did a small flower made of corn husks and put it on a bottle so I can share it with my friends this Valentine's Day. Flowers are so beautiful that I even used it as a decor in a gift, check it here. This time, I used the corn husk to create beautiful flowers since the style of my flowers is so conducive to the material I used in this project. I am sure your friends will like this flower in a bottle.
Love is in the air. And some of you are busy decorating their places in preparation for Valentines. I am thinking of a great decor this love day and flower balls are just perfect. Flower balls are commonly seen at weddings and other elegant events. This is just so easy to make using recycled papers and other materials you can find at home. And what is good about this is that you can do it yourself and you don't need a florist at all - you save a lot of money!
