    What does a delicious can of SPAM have to do with colonialism and Asian identity? CHamoru/Filipina artist Sierra Sevilla attempts to answer this in her hilarious one-woman show.

    For the Love of Spam is a one-woman comedic stand-up, puppetry, participatory, and multisensory show dedicated to two things: canned meat and colonialism.

    We’ll find out how this (delicious) canned meat symbolizes modern-day colonialism, and threatens the very livelihood of a whole civilization in these ‘West vs East’ political games.

    Can this formerly catholic, angry and god-fearing woman help educate (and feed) the masses, all while ‘liberating’ her island?

    Supported by CPT's round of 2023 Seed Commissions.
