KULARTS Presents the World Premiere of “Nursing These Wounds”
October 22, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$20 – $30
KULARTS presents the World Premiere of SF Artistic Legacy Awardee choreographer Alleluia Panis’s Nursing These Wounds, a site specific, immersive dance performance investigating the impact of colonization on Pilipinx health and caregiving through the lens of Pilipinx nurses’ history.
Nursing These Wounds explores the experiences of Pilipinx nurses with Westernized medical education and how subsequent migrations laid the groundwork for the continuing global export of Pilipino labor, shaped the United States medical field, and created a fissure between traditional forms of knowledge and our community’s conceptions of well-being.
