From folk dance to hip hop, Luzviminda: the Philippines Dances for Canada 150 is a dynamic program of dance that celebrates Filipino-Canadians and the embodiment and expression of their diasporic identities. A portmanteau, the title Luzviminda represents the three groups of islands that comprise the Philippine archipelago and the provenance of Filipino immigrants in Canada.
A highlight of the Canadian Council for Southeast Asian Studies Biennial Conference, Philippine dance companies, independent artists, choreographers, and dance researchers will mark on stage the presence of Filipinos as one of the largest visible minorities in Toronto and the fastest growing immigrant community in Canada.
