In the Belly of the Eagle: Man@ng is Deity

  • Bindlestiff Studio 185 6th Street San Francisco, CA, 94103 United States (map)

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.
