This dance video premiered for May Asian Heritage Month with CanAsian Arts Network, and is being shared publicly for June Philippine Heritage Month.
This dance piece is set to the Filipino lullaby “Ugoy ng Duyan” (In the Rocking of the Cradle) by Philippine National Artist Lucio San Pedro, conveying the warmth and security of a mother’s embrace. The piece evokes the soothing comfort of maternal love, inviting one to bask in the nostalgia of one’s own memories. It is a celebration of the power of love and the enduring connection between mother and child, offering a moment of respite from the chaos of the world and a reminder of the solace that can be found in the refuge of love.
