#ArtPH - Bright and Beautiful Triggers, The First Trigger Project

For the past 17 months,  Banaue Miclat-Janssen workedon a project to help student performers identify possible triggers for mental challenges and heal these triggers by creating a performance.

The UP system offers an Enhanced Creative Work and Research Grant that paved the way for her first trigger project. The grant allowed Banaue to conduct a study and produce a methodology towards creating a Trigger Project during the COVID-19 lockdown. Teachers and students were neither allowed to appear on campus nor meet outside school grounds. The grant was for 18 months, and the project was executed in four phases: research, devising, performance, and evaluation.

As part of the research phase, she reached out to her department’s theater arts students majoring in performance and/or practice-as-research. The trigger team was blessed with four undergraduate students and one masteral student. She also partnered with a psychiatrist, who was involved on a consultation basis.

For three months towards the end of the research phase, Banaue asked these students to track down their daily emotional journey via Positive Psychology trackers to set the baseline of their mental health status. She also gave them mindfulness meditation exercises. Fast forward to December 2021, the project is now ready!

The performance of Bright and Beautiful Triggers will stream online from midnight of December 1 to midnight of December 31 via the UP Department of Speech Communication and Theatre Arts Facebook page and the Banaue Miclat-Janssen YouTube page.
