The Virgin Labfest

The Virgin Labfest (VLF), which was initially slated from June 10 to 28, extends its online run, starting July 2 to 15 on Vimeo!

Dustin Celestino’s Doggy has been pulled out of the festival.


Included in the staged readings are Nicko de Guzman’s Bagahe, Dingdong Novenario’s Dominador Gonzales, National Artist, Buch Dacanay’s Jenny Li, Bernice Dacara’s Matira Matibay, and Claro De Los Reyes’ Mongoloida’s Casa De Pun.
