Luzviminda: the Philippines Dances for Canada150 is a major live dance and music concert on October 26-28, 2017 at York University.

A portmanteau, “Luzviminda” represents the three groups of islands, Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao, 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, Luzviminda will bring together folk dance, contemporary dance, breaking, and jazz, forms that Filipino-Canadians embody to express their immigrant identities. In addition, it will feature performances from soprano singer, Lilac Caña, and popular singer, Josie de Leon.

A historical collaboration among Philippine dance companies, independent artists and dance researchers, and musicians, Luzviminda will both mark and celebrate the presence of Filipinos as the fastest growing immigrant community in Canada and one of the largest visible minorities in Toronto.

Dr. Patrick Alcedo, an Associate Professor in the Department of Dance at York University, will direct the show. After a nationwide search for outstanding Filipino-Canadians, the Golden Balangay Awards named him its first Pinoy of the Year in recognition of his excellence in arts and culture, teaching and research, and community engagement.
 

Produced with the support of Canada150@York and the City of Toronto through the Toronto Arts Council, Luzviminda is a rare concert that is not to be missed.

Tickets are only $15 and $10 for students and seniors, and can be purchased directly at AMPD.YORKU.CA/BOXOFFICE, or by calling the York University Box Office at 416-736-5888.
