LaMama Coffeehouse Chronicles #127 – KInding Sindaw – June 13th, 20150
ABOUT KINDING SINDAW
“The dances of KINDING SINDAW originate from the royal court dances of the Maranao-Sultante – a repertory of the sacred, classic, and secular combining grace and vigor, dnaces that directly reflect their rich natural enviornment. Dancers imitate the graceful movements of birds, fish, butterflies, rivers, streams, and ocean trekking boats, celebrate fertility in vigorous choreography, sway delicately using colorful fans and scarves, and dramatically inspire through the martial art of silat.”
The afternoon event was celebrating the work of ‘Kinding Sindaw’ and the founder/artistic director Potri Ranka Manis Queano Nur.
A panel discussion included the following persons: Porti Ranka Manis/Ellin Anisha Guro/Dr. Nonilon V. Queano, Ph.D/Malaika Queano/ Dr. Lisa Parker, Ph.D/Corky Lee (Photographer)
The panel discussion featured all of the panelist and their contribution to the company and it’s history. Short films were shown which included work done with LaMama founder Ellen Stewart and an excerpt from a recent performance by the company.
Photographer Corky Lee talks about his work documenting the company.
