Popcorn Mondays Only At iACADEMY

By 9:18 PM ,

Monday is usually the least anticipated day of the week, but iACADEMY, one of the country’s leading design, business and information communication technology schools, is going to change that. Beginning this August, the school will hold Popcorn Mondays, a series of events designed to bring out the creative spirit in everyone. 

The first session on August 5 will feature Drum Circle, a workshop that will teach participants how to play drums. Kaya Green Band, the musical act behind “Bayani Ka”, the official theme of the Philippine team to the Homeless World Cup 2010, will be on hand to how to do basic beats for the first three hours. The activity will culminate with a jamming session, so prepare for a night of good vibes.     

The following week, August 12, we focus the spotlight on renowned "Mental Assassin" Justin Piñon. A mentalist who excels at reading minds and manipulating behavior, Mr. Piñon shall use psychology, body language reading, hypnosis and the art of showmanship for the audience's entertainment. The highlight of the night's event shall culminate with Mr. Piñon sharing some of the industry's most closely guarded trade secrets. He will also impart his knowledge for those who are curious, open-minded and brave.

For the third session on September 2, award-winning play The Vagina Monologues (Usapang Puki) will take center stage with theater actress Opaline Santos. A groundbreaking work by Eve Ensler, the play conceives of the vagina as a tool of female empowerment and focuses on issues including women’s vulnerability, fantasies, sexual experiences and self-discovery. 

The last week will be capped off by a Spoken Word Jam featuring Romancing Venus on September 9. Spoken word jams are open-mic events that are all about playing with language and sounds to express yourself. You can spice things up by being humorous, or you can shake everyone up by baring your soul. You can go earthy by chanting to the beat of bongo drums, or you can be cool by rapping and beat-boxing. However you want to present yourself, there’s only one requirement: that you be true to yourself and connect with the live audience. 

Popcorn Mondays will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the iACADEMY building, 6764 Ayala Avenue, Makati City. For more information, please contact Kooky Tuason at 889-7777 loc. 314 or carren.tuason@iacademy.edu.ph.
