Still don't know where to go for the weekend? Here are the events and places to check out in the coming days. 

Intro to Impro: A Third World Improv Teaser Class
July 12 (The MIrror Studio, Kalayaan Avenue)

You want to meet improv and improv wants to meet you! This one-session introduction will surely engage extroverts, introverts and everyone in between.

Improvisational theater, or improv, is a form of theater where the scenes, stories, dialogue and movement are unscripted and unrehearsed. Improv players create shows that surprise, enthrall and inspire their audiences by relying on their ability to think on their feet, collaborate in the moment, let go, listen deeply and recognize patterns and connections. These same skills are valuable not just for the purpose of entertaining an audience but are also used to help people become better leaders, workers, teachers, students, and family members. Learn from the best improv instructors in the country and find out what improv can do for you. #developingpeople

Limited slots only.

Third World Improv, the first improv training center in the Philippines, is the producer of the Manila Improv Festival, the biggest improv festival in Asia.

Jesse McCartney Live In Manila
July 13 (New Frontier Theater)

Critically acclaimed pop artist, Jesse McCartney is thrilled to announce his debut Manila show on July 13th at The New Frontier Theater.

Since the release of “Wasted,” the song reached #5 on the iTunes US Pop chart and #32 on Apple Music, the track is also included on the A-List: Pop and Spotify’s It’s A Hit playlist.

The New York-born singer songwriter, producer and actor has had the kind of career that most young artists aspire to. Since the beginning, McCartney has attracted a diehard fan base thanks to many things: his rhythmic, R&B-tinged pop- rock sound, his self-deprecating humor expressed through interviews and on social media, and his ability to write heartfelt, relatable songs that are both personal and universal. His recent music is no different. With multiple platinum-selling tracks and a songwriting credit on Leona Lewis’ “Bleeding Love” under his belt McCartney is ready to introduce his fans to who he is today. He plans to release more music throughout 2019 and bring his dedicated fans along for the ride.

Contemporary Wood-Carved Netsuke
July 1 to 21 (3rd Level Greenbelt 1 Phase 1)

The Japan Foundation, Manila, in collaboration with Ayala Museum and Ayala Malls, with the support of Ateneo de Manila University Japanese Studies Program, Arete, and the Embassy of Japan in the Philippines, presents Contemporary Wood-Carved Netsuke, a traveling exhibition to open at Ayala Malls Greenbelt 5 from July 1 to 21, 2019. Viewing is free.

As kimono culture flourished during the Edo period in Japan (1603-1868), netsuke, small carvings, were created as toggles to secure the small personal items such as money pouches, inrō (medicine containers), or tobacco containers worn suspended on cords from the obi (a sash worn with kimono). What began as functional pieces to prevent those little containers from falling to the ground evolved into small but highly creative carvings. In Japan, some netsuke enthusiasts and carvers have managed to keep the tradition alive. Today, classic netsuke have gained international acclaim as remarkably detailed carvings, collected as valuable art pieces or worn as fashion statements with traditional Japanese clothing.

A series of special events are also lined up to complement the Netsuke exhibition. We have invited two renowned netsuke artists and experts from Japan, Mr. Tadamine Nakagawa and Ms. Asuka Kajiura, to give a talk, demonstration, and workshop on netsuke, together with a talk by Dr. Karl Cheng Chua from Ateneo de Manila University.

In celebration of Philippine-Japan Friendship Month this July, the exhibition run also coincides with the 22nd Japanese Film Festival or EIGASAI, screened in film theaters around the Philippines, and The Strangers, a dance collaboration to be held at the Blackbox Theater, De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde.

Ang Pagsalubong Sa Apatnapu
July 13 and 14 (Tahanan ni Juan, Marikina)

Kicking off its 12th Theatre Season HABI, Teatro ni Juan’s highly commended original musical Ang Pagsalubong Sa Apatnapu returns this June on a limited run.

Coming off as “a musical that breaks free from the limits of its space”, Apatnapu rerun features new cast members and a reworked second act. The musical is a tribute to Marikina’s remarkable contribution to the Philippines’ historical narrative — the arrival of Jewish refugees (Manilaners) in the valley and their intercultural nexus with the Marikeños. Together, they are forced to contend with the Japanese Imperial Army.

Featuring the Teatro ni Juan ensemble, Ang Pagsalubong sa Apatnapu is a musical that is worth telling the generations to come. Here is your chance to witness, as what critics laud, “sheer energy and exhilarating raw sweaty dedication of a true community theatre.”

ANG PAGSALUBONG SA APATNAPU runs on June 15-16, 22-23, 29-30, July 6-7, and July 13-14 (Saturdays & Sundays, 7pm) at Tahanan ni Juan, 43-A C. Cruz St., Sta. Elena, Marikina City. Tickets are available at PHP150php. Seats are limited.

For tickets and inquiries, you may contact Je Vincent Trinidad (+63915 495 4438) or Paola Neyra (+63956-132-0995) or email contact.teatronijuan@gmail.com.
