College stages MassKara comeback-A A +A
Tuesday, October 4, 2011
THE La Consolacion College School of Architecture, Fine Arts and Interior Design (LCC Arfien) will stage a fresh comeback as guest participant of this year’s 32nd MassKara Festival.
The official announcement was made in a press conference Monday at the Bacolod Government Center.
As part of its 50th year anniversary next year, LCC Arfien is staging a comeback to entertain Bacolodnons and guests to an art show and dance performance that will showcase 50 giant puppets.
LCC president Sr. Ma. Myrna Concepcion said they are happy to be invited again to participate in the festival after a seven-year hiatus.
LCC Arfien is known for its unique performances and unconventional forms of merrymaking.
“LCC is the only Fine Arts and Architectural school in the province. One could just imagine the talent of the students. It’s high time to bring them back again to perform in the MassKara Festival,” Vice Mayor Sayson said.
Silver MassKara Festival Organization, Inc. director Eli Francis Tajanlangit said LCC in the past has been presenting the most creative numbers in the street dance competition. They are considered “oddballs” in the festival.
The group was once disqualified in the competition due to problem with the rules and guidelines of the festival. “They could not even fall in the criteria because they are unique. So they will be the special guest performer in the street dance,” Tajanlangit explained.
Fine Arts department head Dr. Antonion Tejado assured LCC will inject newness and new waves in the festival. “We try to create a different presentation not following the mainstream MassKara dance. We are going to give Bacolod an innovation.” (Carla N. Canet)
