JUNE · Mindanao Dances, with Kinding Sindaw

Kinding Sindaw returns to the Pasifika Series with indigenous dances from Mindanao, southern Philippines.

This 2-hour, open-level workshop will feature live sarunay music. Participants will be immersed in the living tradition of the indigenous peoples of Mindanao through a somatic experience of ancestral legends, epics, and myths. From the epic, Derangen, these dances encode customary law, a code of ethics, notion of aesthetics, and social values.

The workshop will focus on Kaeg-Manisan (dance of emotion) and Pangalay, a genre originating from the Tausog, “People of the Strong Current.” Malong (sarong) welcome.
