BUFFALO'ED is a bold new theatrical work featuring poetic sensual dance
and the fierce Pilipino martial art of escrima. Inspired by a powerful moment in history, David Fagen, a Buffalo Soldier in the United States Army stationed in the Philippines in 1899, deserted and joined the Filipino revolutionaries to fight for freedom. Unmoored by wrenching loneliness, atrocities of war and the simmering fury towards racist treatment at home, the play explores the Buffalo Soldiers' agonizing emotional conflict between their loyalty and personal moral conduct, as well as the Filipino revolutionaries' heroic pursuit for freedom.
"An ivory letter opener like this shows how we can be more...civilized...if you only knew what it really costs..."
"...Fear? You and I know
it only wears one Face, anywhere..."
