Hilot Means Healer by Jo SiMalaya Alcampo, Cahoots Theatre/bcurrent performing arts, 2019. L to R: Belinda Corpuz (myself) as Alma, Aldrin Bundoc as Alfredo, Carolyn Fe as Manang Flor
Lady Sunrise (Factory Theatre)
"An especially memorable performance comes from Corpuz as the girl who confronts Penny on the street, Sherry (Belinda Corpuz). Corpuz has the least amount of stage time, but delivers a few raw, gripping moments that are difficult to watch but impossible to look away from."
"Belinda Corpuz left me heartbroken as the trapped, trafficked Sherry, with her desperate pleas for nicer things, for help, for an out."
"Corpuz and Zhu are clear and specific in their depictions of two women working in what is claimed to be the massage industry."
Hilot Means Healer (Cahoots & bcurrent)
"All four actors deliver emotional performances that show off both their comedic chops and physical prowess. "
"The audience falls in love with the comic banter between Belinda Corpuz (Alma) and Aldrin Bundoc (Alfredo)."
"...sharp bursts of energy that come from Bundoc and Corpuz, still grappling with how to move on from the violence they’ve experienced, but clearly haven’t lost their lighter sides, especially seen in a formative scene where Alma teaches Alfredo how not to disturb the spirits who live in termite mounds."
Tita Jokes by Tita Collective at the 2019 Toronto Fringe
"Belinda Corpuz demonstrates both poise and vocal strength."
"Belinda Corpuz as Tita Scary stands out vocally in a number that has her belting into a broom handle"'
"The Tita Collective is a bright spot in this year’s Fringe lineup — just don’t call them cute"
Prairie Nurse (Factory Theatre/Thousand Islands Playhouse)
"Belinda Corpuz as Purification “Puring” Saberon was perfect as the ‘nice’ nurse. She was sweet
and charming but she had a backbone of steel. Her reaction whenever anyone swore was
"...Corpuz’s kind-hearted Puring... coming off as the most real and relatable."
Anak (Carlos Bulosan Theatre)
"Corpuz came out the best actress on stage with her in-depth dramatization and intelligent execution of her character. Corpuz’s range of emotions manifest the hope, aspiration, frustration, despair and anger that dwells in the tone and substance the play tries to convey."
"Belinda Corpuz’s improvisation piano solo helps to create the combination of warmth and hopeful mood."
Original Composition "I Hear You" as featured on Collective Order Volume 3
"The proverbial strength of the Universal Mother on "I Hear You", combining language, multilingual spoken and sung lyrics is by far the disc’s crowning moment.”

All I Am, original EP
“…The star of the show is Belinda’s rich, powerful vocal, it brings to mind the likes of Mitski or Squirrel Flower as unexpected melodies swoop and soar from the mix."
"Folk, pop, and a bit of jazz have been softly folded into one another to make for a delicate offering that’s topped with Corpuz’s hushed and skilled vocals – she has a quiet confidence. Rating: Proud Hoot"
"A flood warning. In only six songs, Filipino-Canadian singer-songwriter Belinda Corpuz, together with her accompanying band, manage to do something in her debut EP, All I Am that most artists can’t do in a full-length album, to deliver a satisfying collection of folksy to poppy tracks that transcend pigeonholing and genre. If you had to define their sound, it is rich and supple carried by facile vocals with largely strings driven pieces."
- Ysh Cabana of Huffington Post
“...tender arrangements with a shimmering guitar in the distance of windswept debris and lush harmonies coalesce with Corpuz’s divine vocals and words that radiate the space with hope and promise.”
