Joining Theatre Témoin’s NHS Yarns Project as a Playwright This 2021

I will be one of the playwrights for Colchester-based company Theatre Témoin project with the Mercury Theatre this first quarter of 2021.

NHS Yarns is “a collaborative project bringing artists and frontline first responders together to create rich, nuanced, and revelatory pieces of storytelling in partnership with The Mercury Theatre.” When I read their job posting last October I hurriedly submitted my application as the project is closer to what I was currently working then with Kanlungan Filipino Consortium and with Migrants Rights Network and affiliated migrant organisation’s: research on the experience of Filipino and other migrant workers working for the NHS.

Ailin Connant, Theatre Témoin’s Artistic Director interviewed me last December and they released the results within two weeks.

Since December I was reading about Theatre Témoin’s previous works and their aesthetics as a theatre company. One thing that excites me though is Theatre Témoin’s themes (and the processes!) of their works in past were almost the same with my practice back in the Philippines.

I am looking forward for exciting theatre pieces that will come out from this engagement and to learn something new from Theatre Témoin.

Keep it coming, 2021!
