The ITSF (Internacional
Teatro Silencio Filipinas) has been the offshoot of theatrical
experiences which Dennis Rhoneil C. Balan has acquired from grade school
to high school until college wherein he under went acting workshops
under Repertory Philippines. It was in college when he thought of
forming a group of deaf dancers to prove that disability is not a
capability of a person as an artist. Thus, former TSP (Teatro Silencio
Pilipinas) was formed under the mentorship of Ms. Barcenilla.
Dennis was voted president and founder of
the group which also upholds the principles of the Deaf Theatre
Philippines in the field of arts. Their performing experiences extended
from their early days with the Little Sign Choir of the Philippines
Association of the Deaf and later with the Deaf Theater Philippines.
