The wedding dance summary

  1. 1. Wedding Dance by Amador Daguio CHARACTERS 1. Lumnay – a woman who was left by her husband because he had to marry another woman/ Developing 2. Awiyao- the husband stated above 3. Madulimay – Awiyao’s new wife SETTING a) place – in the mountains somewhere in the Philippines b) time- a long time ago SUMMARY Awiyao and Lumnay were husband and wife for seven years, but now the husband has to marry another woman, Madulimay, because Lumnay was not able to give him a child. (In their culture in the mountains during those times, having a child to follow after the husband’s name was a must.) On the night of the wedding, Awiyao goes to his and Lumnay’s house to personally invite her to the traditional wedding dance. However, Lumnay, the best dancer in the entire tribe, refuses to go. Then, during their conversation, it is revealed that both of them still love each other, but because of their tribe’s custom, they have to separate. Awiyao goes back to the wedding, to the wedding dance, after being fetched by some friends. Lumnay wants to follow, partly because of the dance, and partly because she wants to put a stop to their tribe’s tradition of having to marry another partner just to have a child. CONFLICT Man vs. Society.
