Agad na nakarating sa kaalaman ng direktor ng “Katips” na si Atty. Vince Tañada ang papuri sa kaniya ng dating Director General ng Film Academy of the Philippines at aktres na si Vivian Velez, nang mapanood nito ang pagtatanghal ng “Philippine Stagers Foundation” noong Sabado, Agosto 27.
Tinawag ni Vivian na “genius mind” at “maverick” si Atty. Vince, at hayagang sinabing isa siyang tagahanga nito.
“I had an amazing experience at Black Box Theatre of the Philippine Stagers Foundation last Saturday,” saad ni Vivian sa kaniyang Facebook post noong Lunes, Agosto 29.
“If you’re not familiar with black box theater, it is an intimate way to experience theater. It provides the grounds for a more emotionally raw connection with the audience. With seating for up to 100 patrons only, PSF is a one-of-a-kind space, all-in-one theater experience.”
Pinuri ni Vivian ang direktor nitong si Atty. Vince na tinawag niyang “genius mind” at “maverick”. Pinatunayan umano ng direktor na ang theatre arts ay maaaring magamit upang matamo ang social transformation at empowerment.
“What’s interesting and different about PSF black box theatre? Well, it’s Atty Vince Tañada’s genius mind. He was able to merge entertainment, pop culture with a fundamental theatrical values in a span of 4 hours. Effectively showed us that theatre arts can also be a powerful tool for social transformation and empowerment.”
Kaya hamon ni Vivian sa mga umookray sa likha ng direktor, “I dare say that most people who criticize his work haven’t even seen his craft. And, for all the snubs he endures right now, let me tell you this… Atty Vince, the writer, the actor, the director, the mentor and the ‘maverick’ is way ahead of the race.”
“Bravo, direk Vince. I’m a fan,” pangwakas na pahayag ni Vivian.
Sa Facebook post naman ng direktor, noong Lunes, Agosto 29, sinabi niyang isa rin siyang tagahanga ni Vivian, at anumang talentong mayroon siya ay mula sa Poong Maykapal.
“Vivian Velez, I am filled with joy and validation that this comes from an actor with so much dedication and commitment sans boastfulness that some stars nowadays have,” ani Atty. Vince.
“I remain a fan of your works, especially Paradise Inn and Pieta. Your post reminds me that I am just a nobody and that all my talents came from the Divine Being who loves me tremendously. Mabuhay po kayo.”
