JULY 1, 2019
I hope my sense of confusion during the first half of this year (i.e., the many displacements I felt as an international student) leads to a clearer sense of direction in this latter half. I also hope that I cultivate the energy and the discipline to see my own projects through (including my dissertation proposal).
Being home feels good. I am facilitating a student-led devising process with recent graduates from Ateneo de Manila University. The piece will be presented in the Asia Pacific Bureau Theatre Schools Festival in Hanoi, Vietnam this September 2019. I’m also meeting with folks from Museo Pambata and the Philippine Educational Theatre Association this month about projects for next year.

Narrascope was great and am inspired to incorporate all that I’ve learned into what I do. I’m flying to the Philippines tomorrow for a cousin’s wedding as well as to prepare for my dissertation, which will be based in the Philippines. More on this soon. I’m not looking forward to sixteen hours in a flying metal box, but I am looking forward to being with family.

I will be attending Narrascope from the 14th to the 16th of June in Boston, MA. It’s a conference about games grounded in story, mostly of the digital sort. While this isn’t exactly “my field” (although I personally play and read about games regularly), my gut tells me there’s a lot to be learned in relation to interactive theatre. I’ll be documenting the experience in Instagram.
Also, I was in two shows for the past three weeks.
