Karnabal Festival 2017

Karnabal

Presented by Sipat Lawin Ensemble in cooperation with The Japan Foundation Asia Center, Karnabal Festival 2017: Performance and Social Innovation is a two-week festival, running from May 10 to 21, 2017, that will highlight the new works of an alternative wave of local performance-makers and international artists in the Philippines through socially-engaged performances.

Karnabal Contemporary Cultural Laboratory, the organizer behind the festival, supports independent and emerging artists by providing them with resources, education and a platform free from the pressures of commercial success, so that these artists can keep creating original and meaningful performances that address the social and cultural issues of our time.

Like a carnival or a traveling caravan, Karnabal Festival 2017’s Metro Manila venue is mobile and multi-site: from studios, to the great outdoors, to coffee shops, a black box theater, the streets, and even inside homes. Click here for more information on the schedule and venue.

Performances are blank-ticketed instead of having fixed rates, as a form of social experiment where audiences determine the amount of what they pay for based on their perceived value of the work while taking into consideration their economic capacity.
