Jumawan-Sauer, who has been based in Australia since 1979, will give a retrospective of her work in dance in a forum titled A Reflection on Lifetime of Dance, which is part of the Albert Faurot Lecture Series on Culture and the Arts. The lecture is set on 24 Aug. 2010 at 10 a.m. at the Audio-Visual Theater 1 in the Multimedia Center.

The Kahayag Dance Troupe will also present a tribute in her honor in a concert titled Silliman Performs: A Tribute in Dance for Lucy Jumawan, set on 26 Aug. 2010 at the Claire Isabel McGill Luce Auditorium. The show will be one of the rare times that Silliman Performs, an annual showcase of campus talents for the University’s

Founders Day celebration, becomes a solo exhibition of a campus performing group.

Jumawan-Sauer founded the dance troupe in 1961, with Shona Mactavish. It was later renamed the Kahayag Dance Troupe in 2004.
According to Ronnie Mirabuena, artistic director and choreographer of the Kahayag Dance Troupe, “It is great that an artist like Lucy Jumawan is one of [this year’s Outstanding Sillimanian] Awardees. Her commitment to Philippine arts and culture is a noble act, which is truly an inspiration.”

The Outstanding Sillimanian Awards ceremonies will be held on Aug. 28.

The lecture by Jumawan-Sauer is open to the public. Tickets for Silliman Performs are available at P200 and P300 for both gala and matinee shows. For inquiries, please call 422-6002 loc. 520 or loc. 250, or 09173235953. (Ian Rosales Casocot/SUCAC)
