Alia grew up identifying as a “Moro”, a Filipina Muslim, all the while attending Sunday School. Now in her mid-thirties, grappling with her seemingly conflicting identities, she is looking to finally figure out who the heck she is, and why she likes charcuterie so darn much (her bank account also wants to know). Sure, having a plethora of identities is catnip for grant applications, but this Taurus needs to get on the path to self-actualization. Self-reflection isn’t enough (sorry Deepak Chopra) so she goes searching for answers through her family’s stories and history. Will she find what she’s looking for?

More about the show and company

This show was powered by Titas. The Tita Collective is an all-Filipina collective composed of award-winning playwrights, comedians, musicians, dancers, theatre makers and actors, based in Toronto, Canada. We explore different mediums to tell the stories about the Filipin* diaspora.


Land acknowledgement

The land that we as the Tita Collective have settled on, which is colonially known as Toronto, is the territory of the Haudenosonee, the Wendat, and Petun First Nations, and the Anishinaabe, including the Mississaugas of the Credit, and is home of Indigenous Metis and Inuit peoples from across Turtle Island. This land has been home to many nations, named and unnamed since time immemorial. We acknowledge their role as stewards and protectors of this land, past, present and future.

Audience participation details

There may be moments of call and response. Given the nature of this storytelling show, there will be no division between the performer and the audience (no fourth wall).

Sensory description

The show is similar to a stand up special. There will be a large amount of dialogue, minimal sound and lighting cues. There will be some images to accompany the storytelling projected on a screen.
