During these times of COVID-19 intersecting with the wave of uprisings in our communities- #BlackLivesMatter, #StopAsianHate, immigrant rights and children in cages, Hawaiian sovereignty and Indigenous rights (#LandBack), César’s solo performance weaves personal stories of being a Gay Filipino man and long-term survivor living with HIV as he enters his 60th year on this earth.
César has presented his work for the Resilience Archives’ Performing Visible Resilience “Coming to America” and “Anal Sex”. For Bindlestiff Studio’s production of Queer as Fuck, he premiered his piece “#Resist” which was also selected to be performed at Kearny Street Workshop’s APAture Performing Arts Showcase. César is a recipient of an Individual Artist Commission grant from the San Francisco Arts Commission. He is currently the Artistic Director for the GLBTQ Asian Pacific Alliance (GAPA) Theatre Collective and has produced their work in collaboration with the Asian Art Museum and the Asian Pacific Cultural Center.
