Sipat Lawin Ensemble is a Contemporary Community Theater, an edge-work, site-specific, independent performance company composed of theater artists engaged in devising relevant new works.
Changing the landscape of theater in the Philippines, the group aims to develop a contemporary community theater experience shared among artists and audiences inside and/or outside the four walls of the theater.
It is composed of three programs : the Main Wing (season production offerings); the Children’s Wing (works for and with children); and the Theater-in-a-Backpack (performance lectures and workshops).
As the country’s premiere site-specific theater company, Sipat Lawin Players have conducted performance lectures about their innovative works, alternative mode of production and evolving theater-making process. They have also done conferences, talks, workshops, events, initiatives and conferences.
