Ngangga Ya (Speaking to the Future)

Speaking to the Future: Our Futures. Our Storying through dance reflects the Storytelling of our heritages.

Our past informs our choices for a future path, however diverse.

We look to the stars and the stories of our elders that helped navigate their choices. We look to our youth and the language they speak to bring relevance to today’s directions.

In whatever our choice, we must acknowledge and honor our past, our elders and their struggles, for without this, we face a spiritually bereft future.

– Director, Raymond D Blanco
