Talentadong Pinoy Audience Guesting: The 3rd Time Around

Last night’s episode opened with a star-studded performance of Mrs. Mariel Rodriguez-Padilla along with BB Gandanghari, Mr. Dennis Padilla and Mr. Rommel Padilla with a special participation of a band followed by the introduction of the talent scouts (Director Joyce Bernal, Mrs. Claudine Barretto-Santiago and Mr. Dennis Padilla) and the jury consisting of a beauty queen, businessman, marketing head, general manager and events performer.

Talents shown by each contestant were lifting and spinning a heavy metal (with fire), singing, playing with sticks (with fire as well) while dancing with a hula hoop, performing magic tricks (Christmas-themed) and beat-boxing.

What amazed me the most during the show was how a 12-year old kid could lift a metal that was rather heavy for him, making me a realize that size doesn’t matter. Whether you’re tall or short, you could still perform your talents. Bottom line: Never ever underestimate a person by his or her ability to perform just because he or she is vertically challenged. Another thing that left me aghast or stunned was the fifth contestant who could make 5 sounds out of different songs by beat-boxing. It really takes a lot of practicing and effort for someone to perform this talent.

I believe each contestant in the show for last night’s episode deserves to be a winner for performing their talents and giving it their best shot not only to win but also to use their God-given talents to serve others and be a blessing to them.

Hating your body? Think that it is imperfect? We all go through that phase wherein we aspire of having a physically perfect body.

Dysmorphilia, a debut full length production by Daloy Dance Company choreographed and directed by Ms. EA Torrado, consists of 13 scenes performed by each Daloy DC artists, either solo, duet, trio or group. Throughout this performance, one could see or learn the importance of loving his or her body and accepting its physical flaws. Let nothing, not even your body’s imperfections, hinder you from becoming a performer and shining out.

For this kind of production done, I could say that it took a lot of effort, rehearsing, and determination from the whole team to make this performance a successful one. Dancing is not merely just an art, but it is one’s way of expressing his or herself (even the emotions) as well.

There are no regrets whatsoever in going to PETA Theater Center just to see this performance done by the Daloy Dance Company members cause everything in it was worth watching for. Looking forward to watch more of their performance for the following days to come.

*Dysmorphilia came from two words, dysmorphia which means ‘disorder’ and philo which means strong affinity or love. Basically, it is to love our body no matter how imperfect we perceive it to be.
