I got rained out of the Brigada/ Poi event last Friday. I really wanted to go, but I wasn't quite willing to wade through ankle deep waters just to see it. This is a big problem for the venue, Collective or Makati X. It rains for 30 minutes there's a flood outside. Also, their central area is not covered making performances difficult and sometimes unsafe. I know the people behind Collective had the best intentions for creating their community on Malugay street but I wish they had looked into the accessibility of the location. Drainage. Parking. Safety. Very important basics!

But enough of the constructive criticism. Here is an awesome slow motion video of the fire dancing done by Ira Villar.
