I first met Toff when he did a talk in UP and eventually, interviewed me for Chalk Magazine's Bright Young Manila last year. He's really an inspiring person and I'm super glad to see him pursing his dreams- one of which is The Sandbox Collective.
Founded by 20-something theater director Toff de Venecia with the help of 9 Works Theatrical's Anna Santamaria, The Sandbox Collective is a Manila-based performing arts collective, commited to the procurement and development of new, groundbreaking, and cutting-edge theatrical work. Through its yearly programming, The Sandbox Collective aims to stimulate the development of our local audiences, facilitate the growth of new artistic voices, and contribute to a keen and diversified theater ecology within the performing arts scene.
A MUSICAL GOOD FOR THE SOUL
What if God was just another story?
Maybe believing and make-believing aren't all that different.
Why is cancer?
For its launch production, The Sandbox Collective will be mounting the groundbreaking Off-Broadway musical "Dani Girl"- an uplifting tale about a young girl's battle with leukemia.
Far from sitting back and letting her condition take over, nine year-old Dani Lyons, whose cancer has returned after three years of being in remission, sets off on an imaginary quest with her guardian angel Raph, her film-obsessed roommate Marty, and her teddy bear Mr. Fritz, to get back her hair after losing it to chemo, and find the answer to the question, "Why is cancer?"
Told from a child's perspective, this provocative, new musical by Michael Kooman and Christopher Dimond, explores the universal themes of life in the face of death, hope amidst despair, and the peerless power of a child's imagination.
