The Smiling Warrior is an original piece written and choreographed by Zarah CabaƱas as part of Raised Pinay. The piece is both an Arnis demonstration as well as a piece about knowing one’s self, recognizing the ancestors that have come before and continue to exist and guide us.
First performed at The Philippine Consulate Kalayaan Hall in New York City, March 2016.
