On May 30, 2014, ESL students from the Tutorial and Language Center of Enderun Colleges shall participate in a theater workshop to be conducted by Mr. Ron Capinding, theater actor and director in the Philippines. He has translated eight classic plays and has written some for Dulaang UP and Ateneo de Manila. He is also a regular judge of the Palanca Awards for Literature. As an actor, he has portrayed numerous Shakespearean lead characters. He has had over 10 directorial credits and has been a consistent annual nominee for the plays where he stars.
This workshop being conducted has the goal of encouraging the students to use their body language and facial expressions more effectively as they communicate their thoughts and feelings to others. The workshop facilitator shall likewise ensure that the group exercises address the students’ language and social needs.
At the end of the 5-hour workshop, the students shall be presenting their own theatrical performances based on what they have learned. This event is indeed something to look forward to!
