U Flair: University Flair and Bartending Competition

Flairtending is bartending while entertaining guests using bar tools and executing dance moves, juggling, or flipping tricks. One example from the movies that involves flairtending are Cocktails(1988) and Coyote Ugly(2000). After this movies, there are emerging flairtending among our universities. I even got to see students practicing some flair moves in soiled ground.

Frenzy Condoms organized the UFlair, the flair and bartending competition for the universities to own and to popularized the competition among the college campuses and to target audience to expect yearly. The competition has three phases.

The first phase is the student who wish to join should submit a 2-minute video of their recent flairtending and must be a currently enrolled by showing their proof of enrollment for the school year 2011-12. The organizers will screen them and pick 36 contestants for the elimination round.

The second phase is the elimination round. There are three elimination rounds. Each elimination round has 12 contestants and the top four will be picked out to proceed to the Grand finals. I was able to watch the third leg of the elimination at Eivisssa Superclub. Each contestant picks a piece of paper to find out what kind of mix and what kind he/she will be.using. I was really impressed with their skills and there was even one lone female contestant among the male dominant competition even though there are still dropped bottles but I am sure those were not avoidable.

Part of their criteria is showmanship(pardon the exclusive word) and how their drink mix turns out. Besides this, there's also an area where you can vote and support for your favorite flairtender by buying Frenzy condoms. The Grand Finals will be held at Dolce on September 7. The winning flairtender will get a portabar, PhP15,000 and a trophy. The first runner up gets PhP10000 plus trophy and the second runner up gets PhP5000 plus trophy. There will be special awards for Frenziest Mix, Frenziest Flair and the Frenziest Flairtender of the night. Special awardees will received PhP3000 and a trophy.

Due to numerous emails, text messages and other letters sent to various officers of the CCP, and to the artists themselves, with an increasing number of threats to persons and property,  the members of the Board of the Cultural Center of the Philippines have decided to close down the Main Gallery where the Kulo Exhibit is on display.  This decision was made amidst controversy and deliberation by the Board as to what steps are necessary to avoid future similar incidents.

In the light of the foregoing developments and recent experience,  the CCP management has reviewed its policies and are now taking steps to enable its officers and staff  to make more informed decisions in the future.  
The  CCP shall continue to act as catalyst for free expression of  Filipino artists.  It thanks all those who have, in one way or another, contributed to the dialogue about art, and the different ways it affects society today. 

KULO' opened  on June 17  at the CCP Main Gallery,  a compilation of work by 32 artists, meant to be part of the Center's celebration of the 150th anniversary of Jose Rizal. Because all the participating artists had a common educational background, all having studied at the  UST, they felt it fitting that the theme of Jose Rizal also reflect the heritage and culture represented by the 400-year old university. 

Each artist participated with one installation. It was curated by J. Pacena II.

In keeping with previous practice to evaluate merits of art works on the basis of established parameters,  the CCP Visual Arts Division,  headed by Karen Ocampo-Flores,  approved the  proposal to exhibit on the basis of an evaluation of their proposal as well as the background qualifications of the participating artists. 
Publicity on the exhibit only happened after a major network covered it in the news. Particular focus had been put on one specific art work,  "Politeismo." By Mideo Cruz.  Politeismo has been exhibited since 2002 in such venues as the  Ateneo de Manila, UP Vargas Musueum and Kulay Diwa Galleries. 

Threats  to security became most alarming on Aug. 4 when Security reported that a couple had vandalized the art works and attempted to set fire to the exhibit but had been unsuccessful.  Subsequent hate mails and  threats to members of the Board intensified following this incident. 

Following serious discussion,  the Board members agreed on the common objective, to nurture freedom of artistic expression, while recognizing the responsibilities that go with it.

Return of the Come-Back of the New and Improved Haring +Ubu-L XXX at the CCP

Sipat Lawin Ensemble presents Return of the Come-Back of the New and Improved Haring +Ubu-L XXX on August 4 (8pm), August 5-6, 2011 (3pm and 8pm) at the Tanghalang Huseng Batute of the Cultural Center of the Philippines.

          In SEASON 2000-Xi, the renegade theater company revisits its adaptation of French Playwright Alfred Jarre’s avant-garde play UbuRoi through a new devised work at the Center.

          An interactive, explosive, fun, filthy, powerplay, Haring +ubu-l aims to revisit, re-investigate, remind, and re-expose the subject of excesses and exploits as represented by the performers, the audiences and their consciousness. Sipat Lawin takes Jarre’s classic piece, considered one of the precursors to the theatre of the absurd and plays with it further.  Setting the entire piece within a toilet bowl, HARING +UBU-L XXX spews out the filth, greed, avarice, gluttony and ambition of society.  The audience is caught up in the entire spectacle as theater’s classic fourth wall is broken down and spectators join the actors in the highly interactive work.   A supreme example of the Theater of Cruelty, discomfort substitutes escape inside the performance space.

          This play is recommended for college students. Audiences are urged to come prepared - extra shirts, raincoats and even umbrellas are a must. 

            Sipat Lawin Ensemble is an edge-work, site-specific theatre company geared towards developing a contemporary community theatre experience shared among artists and audiences inside and/or outside the four walls of the theatre. The Ensemble is composed of young theatre arts alumni from the Philippine High School for the Arts and collaborators.

          Tickets at P300 with 20% discount for senior citizens, government employees and military personnel. Student price is P200.
          For details, contact Dramatic Arts Division at 832-1125 local 1606-1607 or e-mail, Facebook: Sipat Lawin Ensemble.
