Group Dialogue

“We must check our selves and ask the question: Do we have the right to do what we want with designs, music, dances, etc. just because we have Filipino ancestry? Are we truly representing cultural forms or a people, or are we simply creating/performing a romanticized story of a particular cultural form or people?” – Artist & Kularts Artistic, Executive Director Alleluia Panis

Less than a month ago dancers, musicians, outstanding artistic leaders, international artists and more convened at Bayanihan Community Center & USF’s McLaren Conference Center to celebrate, honor and interact in meaningful and imperative conversations focused on Philippine Dance and Culture.

Writer Wilfred Galila transports us back to that weekend in his latest write-up with – “Artists ponder state of Filipino dance, culture in the diaspora.”
