Virgin Labfest 2021: Yakap
Even with the CCP slowly transitioning back to physical activities, the Virgin Labfest (VLF) will push through digitally.
VLF, co-presented by the CCP, The Writer’s Bloc, and Tanghalang Pilipino, is a festival that aims to present “untried, untested and unstaged works.” It provides support for the “development of plays that dare define and defy the times.”
They were unable to physically hold events in 2020, forcing the VLF community to take a “leap of faith” and bring the festival on an online stage.
With the catchphrase YAKAP, the festival “embraces the new narratives shaped by our present realities; embraces the artistic community as it strives to survive the terrible pandemic; embraces the audience with works that have provided comfort and enjoyment in the past; and dreams of a better future.”
The VLF will start on November 24 and end on December 5. See the schedule here:
