La MaMa presents La MaMa LiveTalks, conversations with artists, activists and thought leaders from around the country and around the world who join in discussions about art and life in times of crisis.
RENAYUNG: the magical boat from Derangen epic (Mindanao, Philippines). The cultural encounters and tracings of origins.
Serial Episodes of  dances, kulintang music, chants and interviews of tradition bearers, artists and scholars. The convergence of ancient epics and unwritten histories that originated from far continents and past centuries and now has  aligned to  become the  healing energies to face the current times of uncertainties.
It is the anchor of resilience and rebirth of the new empowerment of the people displaced and in diaspora. This episode is the review of Bembaran Intertwined with Perang sa Bayang. (La MaMa, 2007)
