Jamming on an Old Saya

Jamming on an Old Saya

NR 1 hr 25 min
A documentary on Gilda Cordero-Fernando's fashion theater show that was staged at the Cultural Center of the Philippines in 1995. “Is it a play? Yes, but more than. Is it a drama? Of course, but more than. A fashion show, I was told. Not quite,” Cordero-Fernando wrote in “My love affair with the ‘saya.’” Jamming on an Old Saya, staged in 1995 at the Cultural Center of the Philippines, was all those things and more. Designers, couturiers, and artists reinterpreted the traditional dress for an anything-but-traditional event that included “dancers and an almost-nude man painted gold climbing a rope.”
