Tlingipino Bingo

This is a new theatre project developed in collaboration with Tlingit and Filipino theatre artists in the city of Whitehorse. The piece revolves around a performed bingo game, in which audience members participate as bingo players and storytellers. The performance provides the occasion for community storytelling and exchange, and serious play around issues of shared dispossession, and communication and miscommunication between Tlingit people and Filipino migrants in the Canadian North. The play premiered at Whitehorse’s 2016 Nuit Blanche Festival. 

Performed by Sharon Shorty, Ricky Tagaban, Ardie Carbardo and Hazel Venzon

Directed by Dennis Gupa

In collaboration with the Canadian Filipino Association of the Yukon
