  • Theatre in Manila: The heart of the entertainment

    The city whose walls and buildings are adorned with contemporary art and rich artifacts are not ancient to live narrations and performances to entice the visitors and residents alike. Theatre in Manila provides the Filipinos with just the exact amount of hours they need to put the hustle bustle of the metropolitan city behind them and release their stress. Owing to the increasing use of technology and media, the world of theatre here has garnered a different dimension altogether, moving its focus away from rituals to please gods, wars between various colonial countries and has instead moved to become a part of education. The bilingual musicals in Manila are not just part of any celebration today but have acquired the rights to become “legitimate” theatres as they are conducted within four walls and closed doors and request a fee from the viewers.


    Performing Art Centres in Manila

    Art is showcased in every nook and corner in Manila. It may be through paintings, handicrafts or performing arts. The Cultural Centre of Philippines Complex in the heart of the city is considered holy by the citizens and the makers. The aim of the centre is to preserve the art and heritage for generations to come and rever about what was and what is today. It hosts its annual festival Pasinya for artists from all around the world to come and showcase their talents in front of spectators from the other side of the globe. The Performing Arts and Recreation Centre Foundation (PARC) believes that the movies we watch, songs we listen to and books we read stay within us and is one of the top performing art schools in Manila for those who wish to equip themselves in the field of theatre.
