Don’t miss WiFi Body 7, opening on July 18, 7 p.m., at the CCP Studio Theater. The festival will run until July 20.


The festival began as an attempt to corral the energies and ideas of a burgeoning contemporary dance scene that flourished in alternative and even unexpected spaces, bringing all these together back to the Cultural Center of the Philippines, taking independent contemporary dance out of its niche to present it to a bigger audience of art. After six festivals of dance that disturbed the mainstrea, and questioned the status quo, Philippine contemporary dance is no longer the odd man out, now having its own familiar identity. And so, it is timely that this year's WiFi Body Festival, the final WiFi Body Festival, takes a look back at all it has done and what it has become.



Included in this year’s line-up are the following:

  • Housewarming (July 18, 7 p.m.)
  • Am, But (July 18, 9 p.m.)
  • Tono / Voice from the Regions (July 19, 7 p.m.)
  • The Sky Changed (July 19, 7 p.m.)
  • Macho Dancer (July 19, 9 p.m.)
  • New Choreographer Competition Set 1 (July 20, 2 p.m.)
  • New Choreographer Competition Set 2 (July 20, 4 p.m.)
  • En Route (July 20, 6:30 p.m.)
  • Space (July 20, 8:30 p.m.)


Tickets are priced P309 and P206 on July 19, 9 p.m., and July 20, 8:30 p.m.


For ticket inquiries or reservations, call 891-9999.



The award-winning Fil-Am play Flipzoids opens on July 17, 8 p.m., at the Music Museum. The production will run until July 19.


Flipzoids tells the tale of three Filipino Americans who search for connections and a shared reality in Orange County, a place where "better" is always up for debate. Maxwel S. Corpuz plays Redford, a young man who arrived from the Philippines as a child with his parents but now lives very much alone. He primarily inhabits public restrooms, where a friendly chat between bathroom stalls is close enough for comfort - most of the time, anyway. Evangelina (Ellen D. Williams) is a fairly new arrival. She's a young nurse who holds all of American culture in a tight embrace, from the language to the arts to the glamour of upscale shopping malls. Then, there's her mother, Aying (Becca Godinez), who's fresh off the boat and not buying any of it. Instead, she tells stories of her homeland and clings to traditions and rituals that make her feel like she belongs someplace. Unfortunately for her daughter, that place is not Anaheim.



Tickets are priced P2,284, P1,713, and P1,142.


For ticket inquiries or reservations, call 891-9999.

Alexis Ventura is the 25-year-old behind the name Inkscribbler. Having studied marketing and business in university, calligraphy called to her in the midst of her "I need a new hobby" phase a couple of years back. She has then scribbled away to teaching workshops, working on commissioned pieces, and delivering in calligraphy and lettering collaborations both here and abroad.
