MARCELINA
by Poet JOEL TAN & Composer DWAYNE CALIZO
8pm Fri, October 3, 2008
Perfumed, barefoot with painted toenails, eyes blackened with kohl, big and beautiful, the conjurer, the Pantheon’s Big FABULOUS Queer Deity offers a feast of poetic incantations, karaoke songs, adobo & rice to the ghost of Marcelina Navarro, a young, expectant Pilipina tortured and buried alive for alleged infidelity by the female members of her Masonic lodge in the late 30’s. Moderators: Lucy San Pablo Burns, PhD. and Christine Bacareza Balance.

“the ghost of her
drifts around this lonely town
that has known nothing else since
but secrets
she will pull you
down deep far
under & smother you
with a blanket of dirt.”
