About the Company: Kinding Sindaw
Kinding Sindaw is a dance theater ensemble that has been a resident of La Mama Experimental Theatre since 2000. It seeks to assert, preserve, reclaim, and recreate the traditions of the indigenous people of the Philippines that are facing extinction. Its founder, artistic director, and tradition bearer Potri Ranka Manis is the daughter of the late Sultan a Gaus of Borocot, Maguing, Lanao del Sur in the Southern Philippines. She seeks to examine the true story of the Moro people of Mindanao and the ancient Sultanates that have been overlooked in the written history of the Philippines, only having been transmitted through oral traditions from generation to generation. The indigenous music and dances of her childhood that Kinding Sindaw performs are therefore inextricably linked to themes of ancestral heritage, self-determination, and social justice.
