Third World Improv: Improv Performance, Instruction, and Philosophy in the Philippines

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Gabe Mercado, Founder/Executive Director of Third World Improv, SPIT, and the Manila Improv Festival.

  • Description: Western style improvisation through Spolin theater games came to the Philippines in the late 1960s as a tool for devising theater pieces.  It was however only in 2001 that public improvisational performances began. With influences only from books, workshops and the occasional visiting instructor, Philippine improvisation developed in a vacuum - forming its own identity, formats, styles and pedagogy. Much like the architecture of the traditional Bahay Pilipino or Filipino house where walls are virtually non-existent and spaces are multi-functional allowing for the free flow of tasks and of people, Third World Improv creates a space for a fluid exchange of ideas, identities and stories.
