This project was a pioneering contemporary and alternative creative laboratory for performance and social innovation in the Philippines.
It highlighted the community of leading change-makers from the Manila scene whose works and practices are representative of the alternative wave of art-making in the Philippines. It had been envisioned to:
1.Celebrate the new wave of performance practices in the country; 2.Heed the need for sustainable platforms for active independent art practitioners; 3.Address the importance of creativity in community and nation-building; and 4.Involve artists and those from other cultures, fields and specializations in a proactive conversation towards creating a collaborative movement for greater artistic and social transformation.
One of the platforms under KARNABAL was the International Idea Exchange Platform. Recognizing the importance of cross-cultural exchanged in development, this platform was specifically designed to host selected international artists interested in immersing with the local community of contemporary creatives. This offered international participants the opportunity to collaborate on new works and perform with Filipino artists, as well as shared their own works and practiced as part of the growing conversation about what “performance and social innovation” could mean globally.
The main activities of this project occurred alongside the other festival activities at multiple sites in Diliman, Quezon City, Metro Manila.
