2017: A Stage of Our Own

A Stage of Our Own Honolulu weaves individual expressions of empowerment into a collective circle of support. Drawing on rites of passage, expressions of cultural identity, and self-care practices, this all-female cast transforms hardship into creation.

Cast: Grace Alvaro Caligtan, Malialina Derden, Caterina Desiato, Lilian Kong, Camille Monson, Toni Pasion


During the performance, we asked everyone to hold onto a strip of fabric and write down a reflective word or phrase. They returned them before they left.
