“And as I realize how deep their struggle lives within me - I realize that also their prayers, and faith and belief of me are in me.  And I am awaken to how I am ascendant to all those who will come after in similar ascension.  I see them.  I believe in them like my ancestors believed I would rise.  And so I rise, with open eyes, and mind, and heart and finally see them.”
 
- The Journey of a Brown Girl, “The Dream my Ancestors Dreamed”
 
Created, produced and directed by artist and activist, Jana Lynne Umipig, this inspired and visionary performance harnesses the power of narrative and storytelling to engage audiences in deep reflection around the struggles and triumphs of the human spirit through the lens of the Filipina.  Through collective exploration of Filipina issues and experiences, The Journey of a Brown Girl calls out and breaks down ill-representations of Filipinas and movingly reminds audiences of their true selves - powerful leaders, healers, visionaries, teachers and warriors of culture and communities.  The performance’s mystical movements and mesmeric malongs enliven and animate the strength of these narratives.     
 
Having performed throughout their homebase of New York and across country in California, this story speaks to diverse communities on empowerment of self and community and we welcome all to experience theThe Journey of a Brown Girl.
 
 
Come and experience with us.
 
More Love,
Kapwa Collective

Kapwa Collective is a group of Filipino-Canadian artists, critical thinkers, and healers who work towards bridging narratives between the Indigenous and the Diasporic, and the Filipino and the Canadian. We facilitate links among academic, artistic, activist, and other communities in Toronto.  
 
Kapwa Collective believes it is important to create links with the Indigenous Peoples of the Philippines, Canada and around the world, as we seek to understand our own identities, especially as people of the Diaspora.  Increasingly, we understand that incorporating Indigenous knowledge, systems, beliefs, and practices is important towards our survival as a species in this
world that is in a deep ecological crisis.
 
Over the past two years, Kapwa Collective has participated in international collaborations including the KAPWA-3 Conference on Indigenous People in the Academe (Baguio, PI), the Second International Babaylan Conference/
Gathering - “Katutubong Binhi/Native Seeds: Myths and Stories that Feed our Indigenous Soul” (Westminister Woods, CA), and the 2015 Centre for Babaylan Studies Symposium - “Panaghinabi: Fruitful Conversations, Bridging Indigenous and Christian Traditions of Spirituality” (Glouster, OH).  We have also participated in various community works including Queer Filipinos in Canada, Restless Precinct, and the imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival and been mentored by First Nation Elders and Healers such as Lee Maracle and Laini Lascelles.  These experiences have allowed us to plant seeds that nourish our indigenous souls towards the process of decolonization.
