Pilipino Cultural Night
April 24 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Cal Poly’s Pilipino Cultural Exchange would like to invite you to the 31st annual Pilipino Cultural Night (PCN) – Sariling Atin
Pilipino Cultural Night (PCN) is a student-produced production put on by several Filipino American Collegiate Clubs throughout California. PCN is an annual celebration of community, culture, and tradition showcased through acting, folk dances, singing, modern dances, and contemporary dance.
This show gives many Filipino Americans and our greater community the opportunity to create and engage in their own stories, their own culture, and their own show. The goal of this year’s production is to embrace and find pride in the adventure of following our own.
This year’s production, Sariling Atin (Our Own) follows the lives of six different people as they deal with their own relationships. Freshman college students, Keen and Ciara, learn how to appreciate and love their culture after joining their school’s Pilipino Club.
Zahayra navigates her way through an abusive marriage to Jeremiah with the help of her domestic worker, Luisa. Meanwhile, single-mother Carla tries to balance work, personal life, and her family. She has a tumultuous relationship with her daughter and mother, Aurabel. Throughout the show, these characters learn different ways of loving, whether it be loving themselves, their friends, or their family.
This show has many moments of comedy but also very serious and dramatic moments that we hope will bring light to issues prevalent in Filipino-American culture such as community and cultural identity.
Content Warning: We will be addressing some sensitive topics that are salient in our community. This production touches on domestic abuse, racism, and immigration that may be troubling to some. If you experience discomfort during the show, will we be providing resources from SAFER and RISE and they will be available in the lobby.
Tickets: General Admission: Adult-$15
