The National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) in partnership with Liceo de Cagayan University and Pasundayag Community Arts is implementing a project "Pagpasundayag sa Sinaunang Baybayin" which is a series of activities from a workshop facilitated by Emil Yap, expert on the Sinaunang Baybayin (The Ancient Filipino Writing, famously coined as Alibata. BaiBayin or Baybayi is a system or way of writing of our Filipino Ancestors. This started from the root word "Baybay or BaiBai" that means spelling or tracing. The Sinaunang Baybayin is not based on the Doctrina Christiana that was spread by our colonizers.);

The show performance entitled: "Baybayin" (In english meaning: Shore) is a mélange of multi-Art disciplines basing everything from the research on Sinaunang Baybayin. It's a collaboration of work by local Kagay-anon Artists. From Oro Arts guild, Michael Bacol; From Next Moves, Arnie Jumao-as and Feliz Ugalde and their choreographer Roger Odron; From Dulaang Atenista current members, Jc Salon, Angelo Dabbay, Franz Lacson and Dandy Tan; Dulaang Atenista Almuni Alvin Adaza, Ethyl Malachico, Dr. Reynards Tan and Denise Mordeno Aguilar, who conceptualized this project and is also the current Artistic Director of Pasundayag Community Arts founded by Mozart A.T. Pastrano in 1997. The production soundscape design is by a Veteran Kagay-anon Musician, Drue Dahonpalay. The production is stage managed by Ritche Riveral of Race Entertainment.

The main mission of this project is "Exploring the past thru Sinaunang Baybayin and creating a future using it for performance." On Oct 7, 2016 at Rodelsa Hall. With the options of Matinee at 3PM and Gala at 8PM. Be prepared to be taken aback by the group's version of the Creation Story; The introduction of the 2 major Sinaunang Baybayin Script expressed in an ensemble performance; The individual identities of the artists involved and their body articulation of the Baybayin; The theatrical utterance of the games, contrasting difference between the children before and the generation of children today. So it's a show and a learning experience for the audience. A devised piece created for everyone. After all, culture is inclusive.
