April & May 2012 Tours

April 4 - Sarah Lawrence College, NY
April 24 - Banning High School, Wilmington, Los Angeles

I presented excerpts of Universal Self to 6 classes at Banning High School in Wilmington, Los Angeles. Right on Mr. Sam Smith and other staff at the school for opening your classes to me. I look forward to performing the full length version of Universal Self to the entire school in the near future!

April 24 - Da Poetry Lounge, West Hollywood, Los Angeles

Chilling with Dante Basco. Keeping it Universal!

April 27 - UC Santa Cruz, SOAR Alumni Reunion
"Kilusan. Thank you so much for coming to the Alumni Dinner and writing a poem just for the occasion. Amazing! Many students have mentioned it over the past few days. You connected with everyone, across the years. Thank you again!"

April 28 - San Francisco War Memorial

Universal Self at the SF War Memorial. I am blessed to have 4 generations of my family supporting my artistic movements to Broadway Theaters! Produced by Renaissance Parents For Success - A San Francisco based community based organization - and several Veteran groups based in the SF War Memorial (Post 198 & Bataan Post 600). It was a great opportunity to build with a new audience base. I was reminded that Veterans have a very unique perspective within American society, at least those that understand how the American government are not taking care of minority or urban communities. It was a blessing to receive a standing ovation at the end from people who do so much for the good of the larger community.

May 4, 5, 6 - Nuyorican Poets Cafe, New York City

Grammy award winning singer and songwriter Chrisette Michele came to watch "Toy Soldierz" at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe - a multi media theater production that ran for two weeks and I was blessed to help co-produce. We brought 10 Bay Area Artists across the country to share the universal messages of healing and unity in New York City.

May 11, 12, 13 - Nuyorican Poets Cafe, New York City

May 26 - Mars Bar, Detroit, Michigan

Every great tour needs a reliable driver and yes, I was blessed to be the driver for the Detroit Expansion Tour.  A note to brothers in relationships with artists, support your partner by any means necessary.  Simultaneously, I was able to get into the Electronic Music Festival for free as a result of the good energy I put out into the universe.  I danced my way throughout the festival and handed out flyers for the Detroit Expansion Tour.  Keeping it Universal means performing, educating, organizing and showing unconditional love/support to loved ones!
