On an early Sunday afternoon, I found myself heading over to the Cultural Center of the Philippines to catch the first show of Virgin Labfest 7 Revisited.
While in line for my ticket, I browsed the different materials that were available by the entrance.
From my experience from shooting the labfest, I took my favorite spot. It’s not really the best spot for ALL the plays, depending on the director and the blocking, but it’s the one that generally works – a spot by the top row on the bleachers right in front of the stage.
This year’s festival director, Tuxqs Rutaquio, went onstage to welcome the audience as well as give an introduction of the festival and a tribute to Gantimpala Theater artistic director Tony Espejo; and film and theater director, actor, and playwright, Mario O’Hara –
