Tanghalin ang Tanghalan: 
Unang Pambansang Kumperensiya sa Estetika ng Dula
(First National Conference on Theater Aesthetics)
September 28-29, 2011
Cultural Center of the Philippines, Manila

through the support of
the National Commission for Culture and the Arts
and Teatro Sambisig

This conference aims to provide a venue for sharing and critical discussion among theatre artists and scholars.

The conference highlights include:
- a presentation of the results of the research project “Tanghalan: A Preliminary Survey and Research on Regional Theater Aesthetics"
- and a sharing-discussion among theater scholars, artists and students

The conference hopes to develop critical lenses in appreciating the richness and diversity of theatre work through the inputs of participating theater practitioners. Proceedings of the conference will be developed as resource materials for theater artists, teachers and students.

Preparations for this conference began as early as 2009 when research materials were prepared in a preliminary survey of regional theater situations and experiences. Theater practitioners and scholars were tasked to prepare materials on various topics.

Joseph Ramos, artistic director of Pandacan-based community theater group Teatro Sambisig, was the research coordinator and worked with theater artists and scholars from the four regions (Luzon, Visayas, Mindanao and Nat'l Capital Region), to facilitate their own respective research efforts.

"We discovered that there is very little documentation available," he says. "We hope our efforts will become the beginning stage of what will become a long-term and sustained effort."

Researchers included Karl Gaspar from Mindanao; Cecil Nava and Lucien Letaba from Visayas; and Mary Carling and Rica Palis from Luzon; with Manny Pambid (Philippine Educational Theater Association), Dennis Marasigan (formerly of Tanghalang Pilipino and CCP), and Ricky Abad (Ateneo) from NCR, among others.

"We invite you to share in the discussion with theater artists from different regions," says conference director Glecy Atienza.  "Through your critical inputs and feedback, we hope to come up with approaches in appreciating current practices in theatre work."

“We’re after the articulation of what factors of Filipino theater are distinctively Filipino. What is Philippine theater? What makes Philippine theater, theater? What makes Philippine theater, Philippine?”

Theater scholars/practitioners such as Bienvenido Lumbera, Nicanor Tiongson, Prospero Covar, Priscelina Legasto, Don Pagusara, and others have been invited to share their observations and lead the discussion.
