Capiz Arts, its aesthetics and the Capiznon image

Old Provincial Capitol
Capiz has rich and diverse cultural influences that date back as far as the primitive communal societies to the coming of Bornean Datus led by “Puti” and his wife “Maniwantiwan.” These were then transformed into complex form as the country underwent different stages –from Spanish colonialism, Japanese occupation to American democracy.

These influences created a distinct and peculiar culture that is now known as the Capiznon. This peculiarity of the Capiznon culture is now expressed aesthetically through various art forms: in every rhythmic stroke of the brush, in every graceful orchestration of body movements and in the interweaving of melodies created by Capiznon artists. These are art forms that depict the beauty of Capiz and the culture of its people.

The showcase of such colorful and artistic works through cultural performances at the Provincial Park – an activity organized by the Provincial Government and by the Organization of Tourism Officers of Capiz - gives the viewing audience an exciting and learning experience.

The 111th foundation day of the civil government of Capiz will mark the celebration of Capiztahan 2012. It aims to make Capiz move as one people and to uplift the Capiznon pride and identity as the “inaanak ni Labawdunggon (descendants of Labawdunggon).” Labawdunggon is a mythical hero of Tumandok-Bukidnon, an indigenous tribe in the hinterlands of Tapaz and Jamindan, Capiz.
