10/21/2011: Kilusan Bautista's Universal Filipino at La Peña (Berkeley)


PAWA is proud to be community partners for Kilusan Bautista's La Peña performance of Universal Filipino.

Universal Filipino is a new solo Hip Hop theater piece written and performed by Kilusan (Jeremy Bautista). It premiered in 2010 at the Rebel Diaz Arts Collective, Bronx, NY. This play offers a creative and cutting edge presentation of the contemporary struggles for working class, Filipino Americans in the diaspora and the interconnectedness of Hip Hop culture with indigenous, tribal Filipino cultural expressions. "Universal Filipino" is an artistic collaboration with DJ Soulcrates (sound engineer/live DJ from Sacramento, CA), Yuisa Davila (Co-director from the Bronx, NY), and Lia McPherson (movement director/choreographer from Detroit, MI).
