February is coming to a close. It’s been a month filled with mushy revelry and several dates, we’re now scouring for ways to bid good-bye to it. We do believe in ending on a high note before March rolls in. Not to mention that we’re really close to the summer season as well. (Aww, no more cold breeze.)
See where we plan to go this weekend so you too can plot it on your calendars.

What do you do when artists aren’t given enough space and have limited resources to create? You make a statement. Hataw and Daloy Dance Company will do just that with a series of interpretative dances. They will also incorporate steps inspired by sabong (cock-fighting) to further explore the topic.
