ilang ilang | the sensual rebel

$15
per month
It is said that wherever Ilang-Ilang is in the Philippines is where the beautiful spirit has wandered. Because Ilang-Ilang is so wide spread in the Philippines, this observation makes for the eerie realization that Ilang-Ilang has wandered over all the land.

Ilang-ilang is also most fragrant and alive at dusk.

Ilang-ilang wants us to honor our sensuality. To unravel and bask in it.

About Moonyeka

My name is Moonyeka.

Within me is a whole squad of cut throat, but gracious Aswang. If you are unfamiliar with Aswangs, consider the following: Imagine that in the back of your heart is a portal. You enter, and once you arrive, there’s a blanket of humid air and your human self. You are amidst a rainforest and there is a clearing. Where the sunbreaks from the treetops, you are allured to a silhouetted me. Between my palms: a coconut husk cup full of the water you speak your intentions into. I pour the tubig over your head, a translucent veil adorns you and sends you to the pelvic sea of your deepest desires.
Now swim.


Moonyeka is a queer nonbinary filipinx femme movement-based storyteller and pleasure practitioner. Moonyeka is the is the lead visionary of Aswang* Sanctuary, a QT Filipinx collective, and is one of the Creative Residents of Velocity Dance Center’s upcoming season. Their creative research process will dive into QT + POC sex worker histories, performance intelligence of working girls, and so much more. Their dance and movement centers in freestyle forms such as Popping, Tutting, Animation, while also being informed by modern dance, improvisational methods, and QT Filipinx greatness.

Pre covid-19 Moonyeka directed WHAT’S POPPIN’ LADIEZ?!, LIL BROWN GIRLS CLUB (a movement based mentorship program for young g*rls of color), organized (e)merge: a movement based healing intensive for dance communities and beyond in September 2019; and worked on LOOB—a multi-disciplinary biomythography/memoir as part of a 2020 Northwest Film Forum x Velocity Dance Center Dance Film Residency.

Moonyeka integrates their creative knowledge from, their experience in performing arts and Aswang* guidance to offer sensually sacred, erotic, and body experiential spaces, especially for the communities that have raised them *Aswang is an umbrella term for various shape-shifting, mythological, animist, folkloric, "evil" spirits and creatures in Filipino folklore.

Amongst many project and collaboration Moonyeka is also one of the singers/songstrexx/lyricist 

What guided me to these offerings was my own transmutation work around my compounding trauma. I learned how to create and close portals, re-myth stories from my spirits, dance with my shadows, shape shift myself and my world into irresistible fantasy realms, reacquaint myself with fire, water, air, and earth.

My work is molded by ancestors from all realms and timescapes. The work that I offer works me everyday.

As my lessons crystallize I am led to my deep desire to offer transcendent spaces for you, for us.

It is with great reverence that I offer gratitude to all the lands, oceans, healers that have held me and generously talked story, shared knowledge. May the work I do serve the people, places, and historical timelines that contributed to my cycling deaths and rebirths.



What You Can Expect: In the spirit of Lunar Living, I will be posting new updates about my NEWWWW UPCOMINGGGG work(s), every New Moon or Full Moon, that I am developing or am part of. You will be first to see and hear about the seedlings that are to blossom in the coming years. This sharing may look like BTS footage, free write ruminations, access to full length performance footage, b-roll, b-sides, soundtracks, previews, guides around embodied practices +++  SOOO much more!
