Memorya weaves voices of elders and emerging artists into narratives of collective strength and wisdom. Performances explore stories of working class Filipinos balancing tensions between blood and chosen family, displacement and belonging. While queer elders guide younger generations, music is a portal to the spirit world, and dance is a meditation on migration, love and gender identity. As we honor the healing journeys that take place within community, we make space for the present, the future and the past. Kreatibo has used video, movement and multimedia performance to center Queer Filipin@ diaspora since 2003.
