Strongly rooted in the tradition of storytelling, Literatura taps into our Filipino culture through a three-part series of readings, performances, and conversations based in LA’s Historic Filipinotown. In a collaboration of this neighborhood’s only Filipino-founded open mic spaces, Palms Up Academy and Sunday Jump, Arianna Lady Basco guides us on a visual journey to explore ANCESTRY with Steady, LEGACY with Dante Basco, and COMMUNITY with Madima and Chris Wood. Through the written (Palms Up by Arianna Basco and From Rufio to Zuko by Dante Basco), sung, and spoken word, Literatura welcomes all to listen, feel, and be moved because learning from each other is an ongoing process of shared struggle and love.
