Background / Content

Literally means “ring net” which is used for catching fish, the Pasigin dance was created by the imaginative minds of the Capiznons. The dance depicts the movements of the fishermen scooping fish, swishing and swashing the net through the sea and sifting afterwards. A touch of comic relief adds color the dance as the fishermen find out in the end that the ring net had a big hole, enough for the fish to escape.
