Dean Raphael Vargas fights evil with words and film. Sometimes evil wins. Sometimes Vargas is the Evil. But not for CrossCurrents Promenade, as poets Balance, Len Cervantes and Vargas reunite as members of From the Bamboo Collective. Vargas has been bringing it to spoken word stages in Canada and abroad since the mid-nineties. As of late, his focus has been more in film and motion graphics (Tubig For a Small World, Preserving Culture Through Martial Arts [in production]), but he returns with his upcoming play Katipunan, thanks to fu-GEN’s Potluck series. Look out also for his upcoming short dance/martial arts film Sayaw.
