Sammay Dizon looks back to find a way forward in Urban X Indigenous

Jun 12, 2018

 

Choreographer, musician, and healer Sammay Dizon is originally from the Southern California city of Carson, but she’s made her artistic home here in the Bay. Her work often deals with  her cultural identity as a Filipina woman, particularly in the multimedia arts festival she founded, Urban X Indigenous.

"How do we honor our ancestors and look back while looking to the future and moving forward in a progressive way?"

Urban X Indigenous is happening June 16-17 at SOMArts IN SAN FRANCISCO.
