PERFORMANCE Buffalo Soldiers in the Philippine-American War: A Crisis of Conscience

at Asian Art Museum (2:30PM-4:15PM)
MoAD and the Asian Art Museum present

A fascinating, moving, and deeply complex moment in history, examined through a unique blend of sound, word, and image.

Telling both a historical and personal narrative through live music, spoken word, poetry, and visual elements, Buffalo Soldiers in the Philippine American War: A Crisis of Conscience is a multidisciplinary performance examining the experiences of Black soldiers during the Philippine-American War of 1899-1902. The piece considers the moral dilemma that Black soldiers faced in their charge to help subjugate Filipino people while at the same time being marginalized themselves. It also depicts the Filipino narrative of resistance to the American intervention, as well as the complex interpersonal relationships between African American soldiers and the Filipino population. The performance features musicians on piano, bass, flute, violin, and percussion elements including tribal drums and Kulintang.
