FringeArts: Ani/ MalayaWorks Dance: Nanay
September 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:10 pm
An event every day that begins at 7:00 pm, repeating until September 19, 2021
Nanay (Tagalog for mother) is a site-specific interactive dance performance honoring Nanays (mothers) and Lolas (grandmothers) as integral to Filipino migration histories. Premiering during the Philadelphia Fringe Festival 2021, Nanay will unapologetically exhibit a mapping of our ancestral memories through an embodied storytelling performance merged with poetry, soundscape, and installation art.
Nanay is an interactive performance open to everyone of all ages and backgrounds. The audience may participate in a journal writing activity facilitated by the performers to inscribe memories shared with our matriarchs.
Poetry used in the performance will also be available in a book form, De(scribing), written by immigrant mother, Ani Gavino, and first-generation Filipina-American daughter, Malaya Ulan. De(scribing) is supported by Velocity Fund and Leeway Art for Social Change Grant.
Directed by: Ani Gavino
Collaborators: Isabella Mojares, Sevon Desemone Wright, Malaya Ulan
Sound design: Paul Baisley
