David Ulin is a writer and editor working in various literary genres, including: fiction, poetry, essays/nonfiction, and criticism. In recent years, Mr. Ulin has become especially interested in work that blurs the lines of genre because of how it upends, or challenges, the expectations of both writer and readers. His work often explores textures of personal narrative, and such blurriness helps him highlight the subjectivity of experience and emotion. This is a key part of his practice, even when he is working in such traditional forms as the novel or the essay. Mr. Ulin’s style is generally narrative-driven, with an attention to the specificity of language, as well as to the inchoate emotional territory that language both illuminates and obfuscates. He is interested in literature as a mechanism of discovery, for writer and reader alike.
Jasmine Orpilla is a multiplicitous Ilokana/x-American vocal performance artist and operatic composer of experimental theatrical sound installations, in which she activates her lifelong practices of folk ritual dance, combat systems, and music of the Philippine diaspora against the contemporary American framing of the 1st-generation, imperialist, military culture of her own childhood. Unlimited by “soprano” nor so-called classical beauty, her unfiltered voice-in-motion exorcizes eurocentric performance structures from her muscle memory, while remaining accountable to the oral legacies and languages of the Indigenous Filipino musical systems she, her family, and community remains indebted to. With decades embodying center with her energetically intensive solo practice as a multi-instrumental and multilingual writer/performer, Ms. Orpilla’s work serves to humanize and honor the intersectionality of the Filipina/x-American body in agency, despite ongoing minimization of colonial history’s revisionist narratives.
