Day 31 : Workshop with TEARKA in Calumpit

In the afternoon, I agreed to meet Mark Anthony Lodrigito, the Artistic Director of Teatro ng Artistikong Kalumpiteňo (TEARKA) in Malolos. He then brought me to Calumpit to meet with his group and conduct a 3-hour workshop session.
I introduced basic practice of nonverbal theater to a group of almost 30 students. Since the venue was too open and big for the group, it was difficult to contain the focus and attention of the participants. But as soon as the session progressed, the participants took on the exercises well. Some even went beyond my expectation for a very crush workshop.

I spent overnight in Calumpit.
