La Isla Tuliro: Island of Confusion

la isla tuliro

Isla Tuliro is an allegorical spin on the colonial experience through the evolution of language. The script uses Spanish and English the way Filipinos speak these two colonial languages in contemporary culture . . . a mashup of three languages made up of somewhat English, not so Spanish, but always Filipino.

The idyllic life of the KAYUMANGGIs, brown-skinned islanders who live by Dagat Payapa (Ocean of Peace) is disrupted by the arrival of mythical creatures from the ocean and from the sky, who speak strange languages and claim the islands as their own.

Isla Tuliro is part of the Latino Asian Fusion Series. The Latino Asian Fusion Series is a collaboration with Teatro del Pueblo and Pangea World Theater. The plays and associated events highlight the intersections, relationships, and influences between Latino and Asian cultures. The series is funded by the Joyce Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts. Isla Tuliro is also funded by the Asian Pacific Endowment of the St. Paul Foundation.
