Kamayan, which means “to eat with our hands” in Tagalog, is a cultural show held every November that displays the Filipino culture through traditional and modern dance. Kamayan serves to strengthen the everlasting bonds of the District One schools and the New England community.
Our most recent production of Kamayan will be held on November 23, 2013 at Boston College. Our modern set theme was The Great Gatsby/Roaring 20’s. We also performed Panderetas, a traditional Filipino dance. Check out our Facebook page for pictures!
ISA: THE WORLD IS ONE
ISA: The World is One, is one of the oldest and largest productions held at Boston University, hosted by BUFSA. Started in 2000, it is held annually and has featured more than twelve other student groups, as well as guest performers from around the country.
