Kababayang Pilipino
Sulyap (Glimpse)
Celebrating 15 Years of Philippine Dance and Music

In its 15th season offering, Kababayang Pilipino presents "Sulyap", a glimpse into Filipino life through the traditional art forms of dance and music.  "Sulyap", literally translated as "a short look", will give give its audience audience exactly that—a look into the diversity and variety of the numerous forms, styles and functions that dance and music plays in Philippine life.  Through vignettes of eras gone by, of snapshots in time, from the retelling of the legend of Tagabili from the indigenous group the T’iboli of Mindanao to life in the rural Philippine countryside, re-enacting the rice growing season, from planting to harvest, "Sulyap" will demonstrate how dance and music is inextricably linked to everyday lives of the Filipino people.  For the Filipino people, expression through movement and music is synonymous with living.

In "Sulyap", KP will also take a short look back, as it will bring back some of the most loved pieces of its repertoire.  In its fifteenth season, Kababayang Pilipino continues to push the boundaries, taking what is essentially folk and making it contemporary and completely relevant.  From its desire to discovering new horizons, while commiting to preserving the authenticity of its presentations, Kababayang Pilipino, while always looking back to its new roots, continues to propel itself forward as one of the premiere Philipppine folk dance companies in Canada.

With an ensemble of over 40 members comprised mainly of first generation Filipinos, Kababayang Pilipino is dedicated to the promotion and preservation of the Filipino folk heritage through its presentation of dance and music. This vibrant group provides the opportunity for its members to educate themselves and in turn, educate the community at large about the rich history and culture of the Filipino.  Conceived for youth, by youth, Kababayang Pilipino is ever inspired by each new generation of young people who are eager to discover something of themselves by learning something of the Filipino people to which they are tied in culture, bound in hearth and indelibly marked in spirit.
