The Horton Art Gallery presents a performance by dancer and choreographer Kim Requesto, who will perform the dance, Pangalay, also known as the “fingernail dance,” accompanied by Jan Patrick Nazarine Oreto Luce on drum and Aizlrose Albon on kulintang (a traditional gong-chime).
Pangalay is a traditional form that predates Christianity and Islam in the Philippines Sulu Archipelago. This style is performed with elongated brass fingernails (Janggay), Arm movements that look like waves (Taut Taut), and various hand gestures called Bunga Lima.
The artist will discuss the history of Pangalay, presenting both the traditional and an interpretive version of the dance. Following the performance, the artist will lead the audience in a Pangalay Community Dance Circle, followed by a Gallery tour of the accompanying exhibition.
This event is in association with the annual Filipino American History Month Festival held at San Joaquin Delta College on October 22, from 11a.m.-7.pm. and hosted by the Asian and Pacific Islander American Staff Association of Delta College and the Stockton Filipino American National Historical Society Museum.
The FAHM FEST 2022 is Free & Open to the Public!
