In the Belly of the Eagle: Manong is Diety

March 22-24, 2019
Bindlestiff Studios: 185 6th Street, SF 9410


The latest work by Alleluia Panis, with score by Joshua Icban and Media Art by Wilfred Galila. Immortalizing the 8,000 mile immigration journey, the boisterous triumphs sought and achieved in America, and the unspoken reclusive contempts, MANONG IS DEITY is inspired by real-life accounts of Pilipina/o Americans from the 1920s-1960s in SF.
