Lola’s countless heavens. A cat that looks like Hitler. Abandoned train tracks dividing the “east” and “west” sides of town. Taglish. Southern Baptist churches. “Model minorities” in post-9/11. A series of journals collecting dust on a forgotten bookshelf…
Inspired by true circumstances, Ruth Isabel Guerra shared fantastical and awkward stories of growing up as a Filipina in the American South. This was a one-woman performance told in five chapters, featuring pages from personal journals and multi-media art. Together, we experienced tales of being young, feeling lost, and ultimately, the power of storytelling in the journey of healing.
