Walang Hiya (Unashamed)Contact improvisation and body politics festival in the Philippines
1 – 5 February 2017, Makati, Metro Manila

Teachers:
Daniel Mang (Sweden), Ea Torrado (Philippines) and Sze-Wei Chan (Singapore)

Walang hiya – In Tagalog, “shameless” or “immoral”. There are so many taboos and judgements around our bodies and the politics they carry. Let’s take the leap to talk and dance about tough questions. Let’s be unashamed. Walang hiya hiya.
How do we relate to our bodies? They are physical, but also social constructions. They carry relationships, norms, values, habits and questions. We offer a space where we can speak about bodies, be and move in our bodies, and start thinking about the politics of bodies.
We will use contact improvisation and somatic movement practices, bodywork and verbal exchanges to explore issues of identity and belonging, body image, beauty and objectification, privilege and power.
