Jeepneys (Anna Luisa Petrisko) presents OLINGLINGO:::EXPERIMENTAL OPERA & VIDEO INSTALLATION at Human Resources LA on Saturday June 28, 2014. Doors open at 8pm and performances begin at 9pm. Special guest performance by The God Doll and COOLWORLD DJ’s throughout the night.
OLINGLINGO is a ceremony that invokes our ancestral memories from past and future, earth and outer-space. In a total submergence of song, movement, video and language, the OLINGLINGOANS move ecstatically through prismatic portals, conjuring ancestoric magic to heal and give thanks. In an embodied collective reminiscence, we remember we are all baby ancients ruled by ancient love. This is our decolonizing spaceship. We are all spaceships. We are all OLINGLINGO.

Anna Luisa Petrisko aka Jeepneys is a multidisciplinary artist residing somewhere between Los Angeles and outer-space. Jeepneys is named after the colorful and iconic public transportation vehicles that populate the Philippine islands, originating from discarded U.S. WWII army jeeps. In the spirit of that reinvention, Jeepneys uses Earthly materials to create other-worldy sounds, movements, and visuals, manifesting “electro Pinayism waves” that travel through space and time to heal and inspire love. Navigating through science (non)fictional terrains and magical landscapes, Jeepneys sows a deep spiritual connection with her environment, ancestors, and intuition. She is constantly seeking the wisdom of the cosmos and exploring the infinite possibilities to heal through art and music.
Jeepneys has exhibited at the Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater (REDCAT), MOMA PS1, the Getty’s Pacific Standard Time Presents, and the ALOUD series for LA Public Library. She has toured the United States and Europe as a solo performer and is a member of the all women of color artists’ group, Black Salt Collective.
