'Taglish' (Tagalog/English) brings together Filipino and American elements in one space to represent what our bodies have been exposed to as dancers. Contending with the tensions between lineage, appropriation, bi-culturality, and representation, the dance asks whether it is possible to present the body adorned by and simultaneously devoid of its culture and history through performance.
This dance was inspired by and is a response to Trisha Brown's 'Locus'.
- Performed at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts as part of Hope Mohr's Bridge Project: Ten Artists Respond to Locus, with inspiration from Trisha Brown
