Mangayaw is a play directed by Floy Quintos, it also opens the historical and cultural show of the 500-day countdown to 2021 Quincentennial Commemorations in the Philippines (2021 QCP) at the Hoops Dome, Lapu-Lapu City. The show used video-mapping technology courtesy of Immrsv Asia Inc., (same company that serviced the 2019 SEA Games Opening Ceremony) to aid the choreography retelling Philippine history before the Spanish occupation. Quintos is also an ethnographer, curator, and champion of the indigenous peoples and Philippine folk arts. Aside from retelling early Philippine history, the Lapu-Lapu City show is also unique, for it is the biggest gathering of various performing groups across the Visayas.
