Exploring the hopes, delusions and the ultimate will to survive in the loneliest, most bitter place on the planet, INCARCERATED 6×9 is inspired by the real-life accounts of young Pinoy and Asian Americans incarcerated between 1966 and 2008. The immersive 60-minute dance-media performance is the latest work by Alleluia Panis, who was named the first ever San Francisco Legacy Artist by the San Francisco Arts Commission. Collaborating with Panis is composer Rachel Lastimosa of the indie-soul and R&B duo, Dirty Boots, and media artist and filmmaker, Wilfred Galila. INCARCERATED 6×9 is performed by a cast of ten dancers from May 4-13, and runs at Bindlestiff Studio’s intimate black box theater, located in the SOMA Pilipinas Cultural District.

The bold, physically and emotionally layered work of creative nonfiction located in the year 2048 highlights the state of humanity in the United States, 150 years after the U.S. bid for global power began. With abstract simulations of a jail cell’s six-by-nine dimensions, giving audience members a visceral glimpse into life behind bars. The story is told through the lives of three inmates and their struggles to endure the American judicial system. Ronoldo “Boying” Batongbakal performed by Hip Hop and folkloric dancer Jonathan Mercado, Ramon “Mon” Delos Santos by street dance theater, former martial artist, and Embodiment Project company member Johnny Nguyen, and Jesus “Hes” Gatpala by Parangal Dance Co.’s June Arellano.
