Empower Women’s Talents at CCP’s Festival of Plays by Women This March
As we celebrate women empowerment this March, join the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) in cooperation with Women Playwrights International-Philippines (WPIP) as they put the spotlight on inspiring women playwrights and theater practitioners at the Festival of Plays By Women.
Happening from March 6 to 8 at the CCP Studio Theater, the three-day event will feature stories by women through forums, readings, and featured performances.
With the theme “Empowerment, Diversity and Equality,” the event aims to inspire and encourage more women to write their own stories and believe in their own talents in the fields of writing, producing, and acting.
It is also the flagship project of the CCP’s Gender and Development Committee for this year.
Expected to grace the event are over 20 local and international speakers who will share their own stories of empowerment in their respective fields such as theater, dramatic readings, and talks.
Included in the list of speakers are International Theatre Arts Educator from Argentina Leticia Arbelo, playwright Liza Magtoto, Dean of College of Liberal Arts from De La Salle University Dr. Jazmin B. Llana, international playwright and theatre artist from Uganda Achiro P. Olwoch, and playwright and founder/president of WPIP Malou Jacob among others.
Meanwhile, the featured performances will be performed by different theater groups from various places around the country. Workshops, a creators’ market, and interviews with renowned playwrights will also be held during the festival.
