The 10th Manila Transitio 1945
March 2, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 11:59 pmFree
The Intramuros Administration and Puesto presents the 10th annual MANILA TRANSITIO 1945, a multi-media art event to commemorate the Battle of Manila.
In February of 1945, the City of Manila was completely destroyed in a battle between the United States Armed Forces and the Japanese Imperial Army. An estimated 100,000 Filipino civilian lives were lost and Manila’s historic core, the Walled City of Intramuros, was destroyed. The City of Manila was never the same again.
For the past ten years, the MANILA TRANSITIO has been a heartfelt gathering of those who mourn and celebrate the fall of Manila through music, dance, and art. This year, the gathering will take place on March 2, 2019, 5:00 pm onwards, at the Baluarte de San Diego in Intramuros, Manila.
