Abstract

Indigenous Aeta dances are dances for enjoyment among the Aetas. Their dances are mostly imitations of their daily activities and mimicry of the movements of animals they see around them. Despite the popularity of indigenous dances from different provinces, Aeta dances remain unpublished although they are being performed in different tourist destinations in Pampanga and nearby provinces. How come there seem to be no published or notated Aeta dances? Granting the possibility that there may be published Aeta dances, such publication is probably very limited. It is for this reason that the researchers created choreography or theatrical interpretation of Aeta dances. The researchers conducted a qualitative study. The result reveals that there are 15 Aeta dances being performed by the elders and teenagers. The study also sought to ensure that the researchers created a dance following the authenticity of movement and historical background.

Keywords

indigenous, creative choreography, theatrical interpretation, notated dance, mimicry, Aeta.
