TO mark the National Heritage Month this May, the CCP Online premieres archival recordings and shows in HD that celebrate the rich and diverse Philippine heritage.

For its fifth week of online programming, CCP puts the spotlight on the Visayan culture and traditions in “Pagsaulog: A Celebration of Visayan Culture,” slated to premiere on May 12, 3pm.

Catch one of Ballet Philippines’ most celebrated productions, “Tales of the Manuvu,” on May 14, 3pm.  Choreographed by National Artist for Dance Alice Reyes in 1976, this dance production tells the creation story of the Manobo tribe from Mindanao.

“Mir-I-Nisa,” another Philippine dance treasure, takes the virtual center stage on May 16, 3pm.  Based on the story by National Artist for Literature Jose Garcia Villa, the Philippine Ballet Theatre dancers bring to life the tale of a Muslim princess who follows the Muslim betrothal custom.
