Living Pilipino in America
Written and Performed by Cori Dioquino
Directed by Tara Cariaso
Choreography by Catrece Ann Tipon
In person - March 17-April 2nd, 2023
In this one-person piece, Cori Dioquino explores the complexities of her own identity as she navigates through the three major identity crises of her life. “Crisis Mode'' weaves Dioquino’s personal history with that of her motherland - The Philippines - and its complicated relationship to the United States through dance, movement, music and art. With each crisis, she shares her experiences growing up an immigrant in the “Land of the Free”, coping with hidden mental health issues, and her gradual transition from “Proud Pinoy” to “Generic Asian”.
