Although, Lambana has many names depending on the culture and region. Nowadays, these creatures are not known to many particularly today’s people. The Philippine mythology still has many fascinating stories but today’s younger generation lack of understanding to history and cultural impacts.

Tipsy Tales’ Inc. a new company that creates an exciting immersive entertainment. Their first production in Eastwood Mall, Quezon City entitled ‘Lamabana’ where the audience can have their mythical tale unique experience with the guidance of the performers.
The story is about 75 minutes, 15 participants in a group. They will be asked you to leave your things particularly your cellphone in the provided locker. As you begin your journey there is an excitement and a bit nervous because you’ll never know what the story and where it will lead you. The journey begins when you enter in a typical old Filipino Home, where you visited your Lola. The plot will thrill you as the group explore the dark world of Lambana. As the story continues you will meet some characters like dwende, sirena, kapre and the likes. In the ends of the story, you will feel as you are like the hero or instrument to defeat the dark creatures.
The concepts of Lambana was inspired with the experienced of Tipsy Tales founder Quina Baterna and Wayne Yeang, “about two years ago we are thinking about starting something that makes people happy. I’ve seen a lot of this immersive theater in the US, the UK, and Singapore but there’s nothing like this in the Philippine. All shows are based on a western culture like Macbeth, Alice in Wonderland but nothing base on the Philippine Folklore. From a foreign perspective, they only know the Philippine with beautiful beaches in Boracay, Cebu but none of them know the rich Folklore in the Philippine and from a local perspective a lot of younger generations don’t know enough about the Filipino Folklore. The story is not being passed down to the next generations said Wayne Yeang.
They believe that the market seems to be ready with this immersive theater. They think there is something about the feeling of making everything a part of the story, the way people interact with the story and the way the participants’ decisions changes the story.
