PAPA Mini-Residency Showcase
July 15 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Asian Arts Initiative’s Mini-Residency Program series supports and celebrates diverse theatrical projects from selected members of Philadelphia Asian Performing Artists (PAPA). Our cohort of residents include: Annielille Gavino, Marina Murayama Nir, and Daniel Park. Residents have developed their projects during the spring season and will present 20-30 minute works-in-progress showings.
Emma Stone with Daniel Park
Emma Stone (working title) is a collaboratively created solo-performance by Daniel Park and Dean Rawlins. Mixing stand-up comedy, performance art, and multi-media, the work creates a space in which the anger of people of color is legitimized, released, and healed.
imprint, ember, hearth with Marina Murayama Nir
imprint, ember, hearth is an exploration of the Okinawan Kamiuta, ceremonious song that celebrates sacred spaces on the islands. The project will be manifested as a series of music and sound collages; assembled with samples of elders singing the songs, orchestral loops, and electronic manipulation devices, a small video installation/altar set with visuals.
Patawili with Annielille Gavino
“Patawili” is a ritual of food, dance and music from the Panay Island of the Philippines. Inspired from this, I want to create a new ritual of “Patawili”, structured as a multi-disciplinary immersive dance theater specifically centered on Filipino-American stories.
