Luzviminda: The Philippines Dances for Canada 150

“Luzviminda: the Philippines Dances for Canada150” is a dance concert on October 26-28, 2017 at Sandra Faire and Ivan Fecan Theatre, York University. A portmanteau, “Luzviminda” represents the three groups of islands that comprise the Philippine archipelago and the provenance of Filipino immigrants in Canada. The concert will bring together folk dance, contemporary dance, breaking, and hip-hop, forms that Filipino-Canadians embody to express their diasporic identities. Celebrating the presence of Filipinos as the fastest growing immigrant community in Canada and one of the largest visible minorities in Toronto, “Luzviminda” is a historic collaboration among Philippine dance companies, independent artists and dance researchers in Toronto.

Three Performances:

  • Thursday, October 26 at 7:30pm Thursday
  • Friday, October 27 at 7:30pm
  • Saturday, October 28 at 1:30pm
