Welcome to the World of Theater: New Manghods
Hi. Hi. Hello!
Besides everyone having an awesome talent of their own. There are other things that I really admire about this company, We have this so-called “Magulang-Manghod” relationship (and no not those INCEST types, haha) It’s more like those KAPATIRAN moments I had when I was in highschool. It’s where the 4th Year (Seniors) would be assigned to take care and guide the 1st Year (Freshmen) You know something like how a mother would welcome it’s newborn into the world? Something like that.
In Japan they would call this as SENPAI-KOUHAI
Senpai: Usually older than the Kouhai (Senior/Mentor)
Kouhai: Usually younger than the Senpai (Freshman/Protégé)
*click THIS if you wanna know more*
Back to the Magulang-Manghod part, Magulang means an older sibling while Manghod is a younger sibling.
In our case, even if we’re not blood-related we call the ones who passed the auditions and the initiation our new Manghod.
I have been a manghod once and from my experience I would describe a manghod as… Someone who is new to the world of theater, Someone who is eager to learn more about theater, Someone who wants a fresh start, Someone who wants to be guided, Someone who admires his/her magulang.
Now, being a Magulang isn’t as easy as you think. You can’t be called a magulang if you haven’t done anything to earn that. Being a magulang means that you are capable of teaching and guiding your manghods, You have a bit of proof that you have the right to teach a few things to your manghod and have great passion for what you teach and do but even as a magulang we are still on the process of learning and WE SHALL NEVER STOP LEARNING. 😀
Every year our theater company accepts new apprentices. So that means every magulang would have a new manghod assigned to them as well. (that is IF the apprentices pass)
The manghod and magulang’s first pair-up would be in this parade, for this year we had “DREAMS & NIGHTMARES” as our theme.
The new kiddoes would be welcomed to the world of theater, well in this case it would be something like Street Theater 🙂
