Philippines HISTORAMA, a music and dance presentation of Philippine history is coming to Seattle…



PHILIPPINE HISTORAMA is a cultural show consisting of short plays, songs and dances that depict significant periods of Philippine history. This special presentation is coming to Seattle. It will be staged at the Filipino Community Center, 5740 MLK Way S, Seattle, WA 98118 on Oct 25, 2014 and will be part of the month long celebration of the Filipino History.


Produced under the guidance and general supervision by the Philippine Consulate General, HISTORAMA is highly praised for its contribution to the cultural awareness of the community. Co-written by historian Atty. Bernie Julve and community leader Carmelita Salonga Tapia, with input and advice from the Philippine Consulate General in Vancouver, it was first presented to the public on June 9, 2012 at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver as part of a series of events commemorating the 114th anniversary of Philippine Independence from Spanish rule.


The music of HISTORAMA consists mostly of patriotic and revolutionary hymns contemporaneous with key historical events, evoking the Filipino people’s epic struggles against colonial misrule. It is a unique presentation in that it is purely a community effort, and all the numbers were performed by local actors, dancers, singers and cultural performers and volunteers. Clifford Belgica, Lu Lauron and Dante Aviso joined hands in directing and choreographing the numbers, while volunteer performers made up the cast of characters.
