The dances and chants all represent a very rich and colorful culture and they become more appreciated because it is well-executed by the dancers and singers.  One dance reminded me of the Chinese Dragon Dance during New Year while another dance, I presume it is some kind of a war dance,  caught my attention because it used sticks from coco leaves which is a familiar cleaning item in our country.  The facial expressions and unique dance steps  were all commendable  but although I cannot fully connect the series of dances and songs to the so-called love triangle, I immensely enjoyed the theatrical-like performances.
