About

Angel Alviar-Langley aka Moonyeka is a sick and disabled queer mixed-Filipinx femme movement based storyteller who utilizes art creation, teaching, and organizing to realize a world that can honor and hold her communities’ stories in a way that is safe, celebratory, and accountable. Their projects for 2018 included expanding WHAT’S POPPIN’ LADIEZ?! into a mentorship program for young g*rls of color and “In The White Frame,” a work exploring the multi-racial experience in “post-racial” America that premiered at Northwest New Works and traveled to Risk/Reward in Portland.

In 2019, Moonyeka joined forces with Kapatid Kollective (four rad Filipinx femme artists + organizers) to bring arts + culture events for Filipinx American History Month and carve spaces so that we can better imagine and collectively develop the many ways in which Filipinxs can heal ourselves, undo interconnected systemic oppressions, and thrive. They also facilitate “werkshop!” and mentors LIL BROWN GIRLS CLUB.

Moonyeka received 2018 GAP Award funding for their LIL BROWN GIRLS CLUB x WHAT’S POPPIN’ LADIEZ?! mentorship program. They hope to bring in three womxn of color embodiment practitioners to “werkshop!” with LIL BGC. Through movement exploration LIL BGC will have a toolbox of strategies to harness their power.
