‘Buffalo'ed’ at Kumu Kahua Theatre
Kumu Kahua Theatre
January 26 - February 26, 2017
Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 8pm, and Sundays at 2pm
Kumu Kahua Theatre begins 2017 with a story of Anglo colonization reaching into the Philippines, and the men and women who fought to stop it.
The Buffalo Soldiers were primarily in the U.S. cavalry assembled during the Civil War. Their bravery impressed everyone and they were invited to participate in more wars for freedom world wide: Spanish-American War, San Juan, Puerto Rico, Cuba, then Hawaii and Alaska, the Boxer Rebellion, the Philippine War for Independence.
Told through the conduit of a wide range of theatrical tropes, this is a timely story of a part of history that needs to be told: the Filipino and Black-American experience at the hands of manifest destiny.
