Livin’ La Vida Imelda: Carlos Celdran in Silverlens’ Slab
The tour is now a show. Take The CCP walking tour without all that - well, walking. 
Since 2004, performance artist and cultural activist Carlos Celdran has been performing his multi-media 1970’s Philippine history and disco themed “Livin’ La Vida Imelda” tour/ performance at the Cultural Center of the Philippines Complex. His performance explores issues of Cold-War geopolitics, the global influence of Hollywood, Philippine Post-colonial cultural identity and it’s constructs, the ideals of democracy in developing nations, and the creation of what Mr. Celdran likes to call: “State sanctioned arts & culture”. This gossipy performance is framed by the biography of the Philippine’s flamboyant former first lady Imelda Marcos and set to disco music. 
In lieu of the setting provided by Mrs. Imelda Marcos’ commissioned architecture, Mr. Celdran will be using handmade visual guides, multi-media and selected artworks among the Silverlens/SLab collection as a jumping point for the “Livin’ La Vida Imelda” narrative. This is the second time Mr. Celdran has transposed the performance to a gallery setting. “Livin’ La Vida Imelda - The Performance” premiered in 2011 at Twist Gallery in Toronto, Canada.
There will be 15 show dates, these are scheduled on Thursday to Saturday nights

The Mom paddles…

2012 is my 2rd year with PDRT (Phil. Dragonboat Rowing Team) Fireblades. If you think about it in school years I’m just in kinder 2. :P

Started dragon boat 2007 in Dubai. I was having lunch in a cafeteria one day with my colleague, Ben. We were chatting about sports and other stuff. He mentioned that he’s the captain of a dragon boat team and invited me to try it. The next day I showed up at the venue and so there begins my journey…

The Noodle House Dragons - my first dragon boat team. Taken during my first and last race in Dubai :P

After 6 months of training I needed to stop because of my tight schedule at work. All I can do then was take photos on race events.

Phil - my husband (not Younghusband :P) started dragon boat paddling in Singapore with Safra before coming to Dubai.
