Louisiana Purchase Exhibition of 1904
Based on the St. Louis World Fair where over 1,000 Filipinos were imported to America to be featured in a human zoo, we follow the story of three Filipina women lost to its history who remain buried 13,000 kilometres away from home. Currently being developed with fu-GEN Asian Canadian Theatre Company.

Three new generation Filipinx-Canadian women are at the table together and asked to create a piece that speaks to their experience as young Filipinas. How have beauty standards changed since the riveting production of Miss Orient(ed) by Nina Lee Aquino and Nadine Villasin? They explore these questions and more in this upcoming project.
