Bañamos: The Bathing of Spectacle of Travel, Modernity, and Place as Folklore and Performance

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The Bañamos Festival, as a folk and modern expression of culture (and a performance as well) of the people of Los Baños, Laguna will be read as a space and time of spectacle to speculate and interrogate the production of Philippine festivals, in establishing the dynamics and politics of capital, mobility, modernity, and tourism. By reading the performatives seen and experienced through a community during a festive occasion, this essay examines a particular space and time of travel and modernity that is produced, consumed, and mobilized by different agencies and structures of powerplay in the creation of a contested locality – or a reality. As a critique, this paper seeks to reconfigure such positions through Guy Debord’s propositions about the spectacle (1995) and its process of unifying separateness or the illusion of unity from disparate realities produced by the present capitalist society.
