About Teatro Pilipinas

Teatro Pilipinas – the first comprehensive web portal solely devoted to theater in the Philippines from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. This project is funded by the Commission on Information and Communications Technology (CICT) in cooperation with the University of the Philippines through the Department of Speech Communication and Theater Arts.

Teatro Pilipinas aims to provide a virtual space for Filipino theater artists, managers and scholars to meet, exchange ideas and share their expertise. It hopes to nurture an online community that is genuinely committed to the study and practice of theater in the Philippines. It hopes to contain a database of theater practitioners in all aspects of theater production, theater companies (professional, school-based, community), theatrical resources, as well as photo and video archives. It also hopes to contain an active forum where various issues concerning theater may be discussed.

In fostering this community, Teatro Pilipinas hopes to connect Philippine theater to the rest of the world.
