Bindlestiff Studio is proud to screen performance footage from one of its most beloved productions. Originally performed in 2010 to sell-out crowds during its entire run, THE BAKLA SHOW 2: MYTHS RETOLD, REALITIES UNFOLD explored the awkward, painful and joyful realities of being Filipino and bakla (the Filipino word for “gay”) through the lens of myths, legend, and folktales. Sketches performed in the innovative show went on to garner numerous awards and accolades, including: Edgar Poma’s “‘Tude and Gratitude” which, as part of Eat Our Shorts, was recognized with the SOLD OUT! Award for outstanding box office performance at the SF Fringe Festival 2010; and Emmanuel Romero’s “Viewer Discretion Advised (Tape 96)” which was adapted by Drew Stephens into a much-lauded short film – (Best Fest Short Program – LGBT Film Festival, Audience Award – San Francisco Scary Cow Film Screening, Best Short – Cinema St. Louis Q Fest, nominated Best Short – Barcelona Int’l LGBT Film Festival).
Don’t miss the chance to watch this unforgettable show. Relive the experience. One day only! Two screenings, June 2nd @ 1pm & 4PM.
