In the Belly of the Eagle: Man@ng is Deity
A mesmerizing tribute to the Pilipinx diaspora through the soul of the Manong, IN THE BELLY OF THE EAGLE - MAN@NG IS DEITY is the latest multimedia dance theater workshop performance by Alleluia Panis, performed by 10 dancers to original music by composer Joshua Icban, and with visual media by filmmaker Wilfred Galila.
In his deathbed, Valentino Pablo, of the manong generation, recalls vivid moments of early 20th century American life in which he and his fellow Pilipinos had bonded and created a community to ease their struggles of living in a society that valued them for cheap labor but loathed them and denied their humanity. He relives the struggles, the joys, and the spirit of survival that defined his generation.

The Geek Show: Game Night
Get your character sheets and arcade sticks ready, as “The Geek Show” is back for GAME NIGHT!
This year, the “Geek Show” troupe returns to the Bindlestiff stage to bring their uniquely nerdy
brand of sketch comedy and scripted drama into the world of gaming -- exploring identity, destiny, love, and loss from a gamer’s perspective. From board games and video games, to MMO’s and tabletop role-playing games, the Geeks aim to leave no stone unturned and no die unrolled in their exploration of a world typically lost to the most difficult game of all: growing up.
“The Geek Show: Game Night” will be having its nine-performance run at Bindlestiff Studio from
April 11-27, with shows every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night at 8pm.
DALUYAN: Embodied Storytelling Intensive
Healing Through Movement; Facilitated by Sammay Dizon
DALUYAN: Embodied Storytelling Intensive is an in-depth weekly workshop process that investigates the ancestral memory that lives within our corporeal being through movement, writing, and performance ritual - facilitated by Sammay Dizon. How do we cultivate a relationship of healing to our personal and intergenerational traumas in order to realize our most whole Self? How can we thereby access the inherent joy and ancestral resilience that already lives inside of us? From mid-February to early May 2019, participants will gather 2x/week (mostly Fridays at 6-9pm and Sundays at 2-5pm) to explore how one can interweave these forms in service to our healing of Self, Lineage, and Community. This intensive process is intended for both the artist and the non-artist identifying and will culminate in a public performance at Bindlestiff Studio. Participants will also be invited to be a part of a process-oriented documentary by Solitaire Miguel that will follow Dizon's methodologies and the cultivation of the collective knowledge body through this work.
DALUYAN is a Filipino word that translates into "vessel."
* This intensive is focused on BIPOC womxn and non-binary identifying folks; those of Pilipinx descent are especially encouraged to participate.
