Abstract:

"Set in present-day Scarborough, Singkil tells the story of the Perez family, from the separate lives Mimi's parents led in their native Manila to the lives they adjusted to together once they moved to Canada. Bridging the Perez's past and present is the Singkil, the dance of a Muslim Filipina princess who cleverly escapes the debris left after a violent earthquake. Caught in the relentless grip of the past and forced into the unfamiliar terrain of forgiveness, Mimi must find her own way out of the tangled mess her life has become and gracefully step into a new one, making her way back to the land of the living by facing the mysteries held by the dead. Catherine Hernandez's play illuminates the page with gentle grace, bringing the Perez family to life through the rich steps of the Singkil."--Publisher's website.
