Kamayan, which means “to eat with our hands” in Tagalog, is a cultural show held every Fall semester that displays the Filipino culture, often through traditional and modern dance. Kamayan serves to strengthen the everlasting bonds of the District One schools and the New England community.
ISA: THE WORLD IS ONE
ISA: The World is One, is one of the oldest and largest productions held at Boston University, hosted by BUFSA. Started in 2000, it is held annually and has featured more than twelve other student groups, as well as guest performers from around the country. In the national language of the Philippines, the word “isa” means “one.” Isa has been entertaining and inspiring hundreds of people to embrace the diversity of the school’s student body, and highlights the talents of its amazing students through song, dance, and other forms of expression.
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, and following Boston University regulation, it is with a heavy heart that we had to announce that ISA 2020 was cancelled. Although our show was cancelled, we managed to to present the dances from rehearsal footage and transition videos discussing our theme on identity and how to find your own sense of self from different experiences and communities around you in the form of a Youtube playlist.
