Performance@PAM:  ALLOS: The Story of Carlos Bulosan

Saturday, October 3 at 5:00pm

This is a past event.

USC Pacific Asia Museum
46 N Los Robles Ave, Pasadena, California 91101

The USC Pacific Asia Museum is thrilled to host Artists at Play for a staged reading of ALLOS: The Story of Carlos Bulosan written by Giovanni Ortega and directed by Fran de Leon.

Carlos Bulosan was a Filipino American poet, novelist and union organizer who fought for the rights of migrant workers. Based on his semi-autobiographical book, America is in the Heart, the play follows Bulosan's journey from the Philippines to the farmlands in California, and celebrates the voice he finds along the way. Through his powerful writing and penchant for union organizing, Bulosan pursues both labor justice and the American Dream.

The play is suitable for middle grade children and older, and will be presented as a live staged reading on Zoom with a cast of dynamic actors taking on the various personas throughout Bulosan's life.

The stories and experiences of the Filipinx American community are seldom explored, despite being the largest Asian Pacific American ethnic group in Los Angeles. Presented during Filipinx American History Month, ALLOS: The Story of Carlos Bulosan provides an opportunity to learn more about the diverse communities around us, and to use the performing arts as a tool to teach about American history.
