What is #HAMPASAN?

HAMPASAN is the brain-child of two women who were inspired to use the artistry evident in people, as their way of promoting the beauty and diversity present today in the Philippines. Hampasan is not just a talent show and to prove it, the title was not chosen because it sounded cool, it actually means more than it has to offer;

Hampasan is a Filipino term for ‘hit’. Being common knowledge, to hit/get hit, emits/provokes a feeling. The show is centred in on this. Willing artists are given an open platform to express their selves through any type of medium. The concept behind “Hampasan” is that we would like to showcase a kaleidoscope of people who are present right now, those we come across and see every day and to realize that we actually don’t. This show’s goal is to have a two-way conversation between the artist and the audience; for the artists to hit the audience emotionally by letting them feel what they feel, by relaying their story and of course to express their selves. In turn, the audience would hit back to their performers with their presence during their acts of art.

It’s not a stagnant type of event. It (HAMPASAN) can be found anywhere. It can be done anywhere and it could be done in any way. No two shows are the same, just like no feeling is the same. KAYA TARA NA!! MAG-HAMPASAN NA!!
