Join Kayumanggi for our 2nd Pilipino Cultural Night:
“WAKE UP, STAND TALL”
Come witness over 50 performers, 13 traditional dances from all over the Philippines, PASUpella, and Common Origins in the final cultural show of the year.
Meet Milagros, but you can call her Mimi, for short. Go ahead. Just ask her. She’ll tell you.
Mimi is about to turn 18 and is stuck between two worlds. Uneasy with her family’s values, she has no interest in her Filipino roots and sees nothing wrong in her misplaced sense of identity. To compound matters, she keeps shuffling aside her American best friend, Kellie, who is curious about Mimi’s home life, filled with traditional art and cooking aromas.
Following a series of events, everything eventually boils over and she is forced to confront her heritage. Along the way she wakes up to discover who she is, understand where she came from, and learn how to stand tall and celebrate herself.
This is the story. And while the outcome of all of this is not hard to anticipate, the setting is new, the characters are lovable, and the plot provides plenty of excuses for seeing a spectacular blend of drama, humor, romance, music and DANCE.
$3 presale, $5 at the door.
Approach any of the Kayumanggi co-chairs, interns or dancers for tickets.
SEE YOU THERE!
