Book Launch: “The Day the Dancers Stayed” by Theodore S. Gonzalves
Embassy of the Philippines – 1600 Massachusetts Avenue NW
(Dupont Circle Metro – Red line)
Pilipino Cultural Nights at American campuses have been a rite of passage for youth culture and a source of local community pride since the 1980s. Through performances—and parodies of them—these celebrations of national identity through music, dance, and theatrical narratives reemphasize what it means to be Filipino American. In The Day the Dancers Stayed, scholar and performer Theodore Gonzalves uses interviews and participant observer techniques to consider the relationship between the invention of performance repertoire and the development of diasporic identification.  Gonzalves traces a genealogy of performance repertoire from the 1930s to the present. Culture nights serve several functions: as exercises in nostalgia, celebrations of rigid community entertainment, and occasionally forums for political intervention. Taking up more recent parodies of Pilipino Cultural Nights, Gonzalves discusses how the rebellious spirit that enlivened the original seditious performances has been stifled.

Thursday, November 5

Subject: Tomorrow

Organizing for America
Tomorrow, Tuesday, is Election Day in Virginia. Our crucial Get Out the Vote program will be in full swing, making sure voters turn out and make their voices heard for Creigh Deeds. But it won’t work without your help — we’re going to need a total of 10,000 volunteer hours to execute the program, and I need you to sign up and help us reach that goal.

As governor, Creigh Deeds will uphold the values and take on the fights in Virginia that are at the center of our movement for change — economic renewal, new jobs, a clean environment, and equal opportunity for all Virginians.

Creigh Deeds promises to do in Virginia what we must do across the country — take on the big challenges of our time with new ideas and consensus building instead of partisanship, ideology, and failed policies. It’s up to you now to help us in the final hours of this election.

Sign up for a volunteer shift tomorrow and turn out voters on Election Day.

Sign up

We’ve made tremendous progress in Virginia, but we can’t rest on past victories. Every election brings with it a new test of our desire to create lasting change and our ability to truly transform politics.

In this election, Creigh Deeds offers that hope. As a state senator, he worked with governors Warner and Kaine to implement pragmatic, problem-solving policies that have made the commonwealth one of the best run states in the country. As governor, he’ll continue that tradition of smart, pragmatic leadership to confront Virginia’s challenges in the economy and transportation.

Sign up and help us reach 10,000 hours on Election Day:
