Award-winning choreographer and Kularts Executive and Artistic Director Alleluia Panis presents a new large-scale, immersive dance performance, Nursing These Wounds. The piece explores the ongoing impact of colonization, and the American medical education that accompanied it, in the Philippines in the early twentieth century, as well as the prominent role Pilipinx nurses play in healthcare in the United States today. Informed by the work of historian and UC Berkeley professor Catherine Ceniza Choy, who, along with California Nurses Association union organizer Ginger Faustino, advised the project’s development, Nursing These Wounds incorporates both indigenous Filipino ritual and contemporary dance, as well as elements that invite community members to participate in the development of the new work and its public performance. The piece is co-presented by the Filipino-American Development Foundation, Kularts and Asian Pacific Islander Cultural Center, with support from the Hewlett 50 Arts Commissions.
