Becoming A Filipino Artist (with Giovanni Ortega)
Play • 27 min

Giovanni Ortega is a playwright, actor, director, and an Assistant Professor of Theatre at Pomona College.

Gio moved to the US from the Philippines when he was 12. We talk about what that was like, the experience of being a "1.5 immigrant," how he became an artist who regularly engages with Filipino identity, and why LA is home now.

Music by RV Mendoza and Blue Dot Sessions. Logo by Niccolo Pizarro. For more about Gio's work, check out his website.
