Bagobo Rice Cycle

Bagobo Rice Cycle (also known as Sugod Uno) is a tribal dance performed by the Bagobo people of Davao del Sur. To the Bagobo, the dance is called Miyamas neng Ommoy. Ommoy is a Bagobo term for the rice grains without husks. The dance portrays the step-by-step cycle rice culture; from planting, harvesting to thanksgiving rituals for a bountiful rice harvest.

First performed by the Ramon Obusan Folkloric Group in 2001 as part of "Durian: Isang Alamat Bagobo", LIKHA presents the US debut of the rice cycle portion of the original ROFG piece.
