A look into the perspectives of the women on whom we only call when we run out of clean clothes to wear. Our dirty laundry is their livelihood; the labandera knows us in a way nobody else would.

2:00 - 4:00 pm Maya Fortunes By Christine de Leon & Jennifer Maramba A durational cyber- participatory performance where Maya will be telling a few home truths to her Toronto audience via an online video conference (from the UK). The installation plays on the idea of the urban healer and is a send-up of fortune telling in general. It also uses imagery that is found in Filipino folk healing traditions.
