& Comment

LUNGS a play by Duncan Macmillan, directed by Andrei Nikolai Pamintuan.

The play begins in Ikea just after M has asked his partner, W to consider having a child. The two go back and forth over the benefits and consequences of having a children until W finally agrees to make another person.


The Sandbox Collective and 9 Works Theatrical, brings a revolutionary theater experience which is very minimal, experimental and intimate. The overall aesthetics of the stage doesn't require flashy set design and costumes to effectively deliver the message of the story. At the on set, Jake and Sab knows how to connect and catch the attention of the audience at a rightful manner that is not exaggerated.  There was a clarity on its dialogue and emotions. The actors knows how to convince the audience that the time is changing and the scene is progressing. The phasing of the play is something that you would not expect on a typical theater performance.

It is something new to the Philippine theater scene, that showcase pure talent of the the performers and the artistic team. The messages of the story is clear as the actors exchange their lines together with its lights direction. The piece is quite intelligent that it would require focus so you will not miss a scene or miss everything that's happening. The dynamics of the actors are so amazing specially that it is a 90 minute straight play without interval and they never left the stage the whole time.

It is very amazing how Jake and Sab executed everything on stage.  Every single moment of the play is breathtaking maybe that's the reason why it is called Lungs.

As a director, Andrei knows exactly his visions on how to execute the piece, in a way that it is innovative, simple, straight to point and exciting at the same time. Bringing the live theater performance to the next level that is engaging and interesting.

Thank you so much and congratulations to The Sandbox Collectives and 9 Works Theatrical for elevating and continuously innovating the theater performances in the country. The reality, the clarity and honesty is  something that the young people is looking for in a performance. I'm looking forward and excited to see more of this in the future.
