International Performance Artist, Humanitarian & Entrepreneur, Kilusan Bautista is an emerging voice for Diasporic communities raised within the Hip Hop Generation. Kilusan means movement in the Philippines and he was given this name in 1999 as a reminder to live as a conscious and caring global citizen. Originally from San Francisco, CA, and currently based in New York City, Kilusan combines the performance elements of theater, spoken word poetry, martial arts and interpretive movement.
He has appeared on Showtime as the opening act for Top Rank Boxing Light Weight Champion Nonito Donaire (2008). Kilusan was published in the Philippine News after winning the Grand prize for a State-wide letter writing contest sponsored by the California Council for the Humanities (2005). He was awarded the Congressional Community Service Award -Kabataan Komemorative- in 2006 by CA Senator Tom Lantos. Kilusan Bautista's current work, Universal Self, has toured throughout the world with the purpose of building cross cultural unity and personal healing through the performance arts. He received an "Outstanding Artist Award" by the Filipino American National Historical Society of Metro NY at the Philippine Consult General in 2012.
