History of site and related water issues

Marikina River is a river in eastern Metro Manila, Philippines. It is a tributary of Pasig River with headwaters located in the Sierra Madre Mountains in Rodriguez, Rizal province. Marikina River used to be an important transport route during the Spanish colonial era, but its importance as a transport route diminished when the Philippines’ national highway system became more established. The resulting lack of river boat traffic and the deforestation of the upland areas in what is now the Upper Marikina River Basin Protected Landscape contributed to the river’s siltation, further reducing its value as a transport route. Due to negligence and industrial development, the river has become very polluted, an act which recent Marikina City administrations have attempted to address.

The Music

Section I – Santwaryo by Cynthia Alexander
Section II – Nag-iisang Mundo by Bayang Barrios

The Performance

Section I – We will be using rituals and moving images of the sea, fishes, corals and fishermen to create a dance-theater piece.
Section II – We will be using the song of Bayang Barrios, Nag-iisang Mundo (One World). The dance shows a bit of Filipino Dance Culture.
