PETA to offer summer theater programs
The Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) continues to raise the value of theater and education through its annual summer program using its Integrated Theater Arts approach, which includes the five different art disciplines in theater -- creative drama, visual arts, creative writing, music, and dance.
This approach allows participants to integrate their own experiences into their performances, thus creating original content. Instead of doing renditions of the classics, each performance will be unique and highly personal, making the participants more involved in the creative process.
The summer program ends with a final showcase, where every class performs a piece they themselves will write, direct, and choreograph. Individual showcases will include water as a recurring element, giving them an opportunity to creatively weave the theme into their performances.
PETA's 2013 summer program showcase will be held at the PETA-Phinma Theater at No. 5 Eymard Drive, New Manila, Quezon City.
Schedules for the various classes and workshops:
- May 5, 8:00am to 12:00nn : Theater showcases
- May 5, 2:00pm to 5:00pm: Teen Theater classes
- May 11: Adult courses (Theater Arts, Basic Acting, and Creative Musical Theater)
