Langgam Performance Troupe bares acting workshop for ensembles

account_balanceTaguig chat_bubble_outline0 Comments visibility

The Langgam Performance Troupe (LPT) presents its second acting module offering, Bodies as One, a whole-day physical theater workshop designed specifically for ensemble performances on all Saturdays of February at the LPT headquarters. A contemporary performance company, LPT focuses on producing process-based and practice-as-research works. One of its mission points is to “conduct workshops to share our collected methodologies to potential collaborators.”

Bodies as One follows LPT’s initial workshop for solo pieces dubbed the Personal Spectacle which took place in November 2018. Anggoy Calura Jalla, Kamille Ortega Espiel, and Betty Uy-Regala completed the Personal Spectacle workshop with a showcase of their work in progress presentations. Jalla, Espiel, and Uy-Regala will present their final solo works on the first day of the Bodies as One workshop on February 2, 2019. 

“In the Personal Spectacle workshop, the participants took the risk to unravel themselves; dove deep into intense work; broke some generous sweat on our studio floor as they challenged themselves physically; and articulated verbally and through movements what solo performance meant to them,” Jenny Logico-Cruz, LPT founder and artistic director, said. 

Logico-Cruz, a graduate of the University of Roehampton’s London’s Theater and Performance, added, “The momentum garnered by and the engagement level of the initial workshop make us very excited for the Bodies as One workshop.” Bodies as One draws methods and exercises from Polish theater practitioner and theorist Jerzy Grotowski; feminist theater practices such as collaboration; contemporary performance practices like devised works; and LPT’s own ensemble work processes. 

Bodies as One goes beyond the ensemble as a mode of theatrical performance but as its own practice to emphasize the nonhierarchical, which is the collective, cooperative, creative, and collaborative. Within the framework of physical theater, the second module workshop further strengthens the group’s communication and interconnectedness through physical sensitivity and intuition. 

In addition to Logico-Cruz, Langgam Performance Troupe (LPT) is composed of company manager Blonski Cruz; artistic associates Joel Garcia, Jacq Nacu-Garcia, and Diana Aviado; and administrator Gaya dela Rosa.
