A night of Visayan poetry, balitaw, verse and images, and other musical performances will be held at the tempurahan along Rizal Blvd. on Friday, Feb. 11 at 7 pm. Dubbed as Balak, Balitaw ug Uban pa sa Tempurahan, this program is one of the main events of Kisaw 2011, Negros Oriental’s celebration of National Arts Month.

In this event, three-time Buglasan Balitaw winner Barangay Bantayan cultural group, together with select members of the Youth Advocates through Theater Arts (YATTA) and students of the RTPM Dumaguete Science High School, shall perform their own brand of the balitaw.

Balak winners from last year’s Buglasan, together with Glynda Descuatan and Dr. Nichol Elman, will perform Visayan poetry, while the Quizo Family Quintet and Maria Elcon Cabasag will render well-loved songs.

This event has been staged annually since 2009, and as a new element to the show, some select images of celebrated photographers Hersley Ven Casero, Alma Alcoran, and Herminia Larong will fuse with contemporary poetry in a multi-media presentation.

This event is supported by the Negros Oriental provincial government, the Dumaguete City government, the Provincial and City Tourism offices, the Silliman University Cultural Affairs Committee, Sky Cable, and YATTA.
