# Dream Up Festival # Filipino

Filipino Playwright Joins NYC's Dream Up Festival

Dream Up Festival is a proletarian collective work that happens over a year but is only seen for 3 weeks. The festival consists of performing artists representing theater and performance companies in their theater complex in downtown New York since 2010. 

This year, Filipino Playwright Joel Trinidad joins the festival with his short play, "Zandar the Magnificent" which runs until September 8!

Theater for the New City (TNC), the organizers of Dream Up Festivalhas consistently been the most inexpensive theater of its caliber and the institution continues its commitment to affordable tickets with this festival. Dream Up Festival ticket prices will range from $12-$18 for the participating productions. Most of the productions will be staged at least five times. 

Joel Trinidad, on the other hand, is a prominent actor/writer/director from the Philippines who loves the arts more than anything else so it's just perfect that he becomes part of this festival! Joel has just completed his first novel, "Budapest Blues." His short plays "Crush Hour" and "Witchslap" have recently been produced in NYC, where he spends several months of every year. He is currently in the Philippines playing the role of Mad Hatter in Repertory Philippines's "Alice in Wonderland."
