Standing ovations greeted the curtain calls of the Integrated Performing Arts Guild (IPAG) in two performances for the international diplomatic corps and the Filipino community at the Opera House and the Sheraton, Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon), Vietnam.

Standing Ovation - IPAG Vietnam

IPAG highlighted the 115th Independence Day celebrations on the invitation of the Philippine Embassy and the large Filipino community. Its “Tales From Mindanao” reputed to be the most travelled Philippine dance-theatre production today has received similar electric responses in its over 100-city world road shows as the Guild has added Vietnam to its list of “conquered” audiences.

IPAG sets its sights to fulfill invitations in Europe and the Middle East, to complement its 36th Season at home. It returns to Vietnam in September to again represent the country in the Asia-Pacific Bureau of Drama Schools in its bid for a seat in this prestigious body of performing arts schools around the world.

The touring company: Arlem Abanes (Production Manager), Loraine Antiquina, Blesy Cece, Diane Therese Clemente, Gaspar Cortes, Herninigildo Dico (Stage Manager), Leilani Fernandez, Julius Hechanova, John Michael Lagura, Lilybeth Maraon, Ronald Allan Salazar, Kassandhra Suazo, and Steven P.C. Fernandez (Artistic Director). Lights were designed by Joey Nombres, and the International Liaison facilitated by Stanley Perry C. Fernandez.

IPAG is the resident company of the MSU-Iligan Institute of Technology.
