Tawid sa Harbour: Anything About Theatre

Tawid sa Harbour: Anything About Theatre

By Uleb Nieto
The title is a phrase often used by performance makers at the Cultural Center of the Philippines. "Tawid sa Harbour" (Head over to the harbour) subtly means "Let us head over somewhere to talk about what we just experienced."

As an assistant professor in a university and a performance maker, I talk about theatre every minute of my every day. I intend to extend my class discussions and creative work in this podcast. I hope that we continue reclaiming our collaborative spaces and creating new public spheres in the time of the global health crisis.
