THE BAKLA SHOW 2 [A Special DVD Screening]
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).

ABOUT BINDLESTIFF STUDIO
In 1989, Bindlestiff Studio was established as a 52-seat black box theater that fed the underground experimental theater scene of the early 90s in San Francisco's South of Market (SOMA) District. This makes it the longest running theater arts organization in SOMA. In 1997, the Filipino American theater group tongue-in-A-mood took over operations and transformed Bindlestiff Studio as the epicenter for Pilipino and Filipino American performing arts. Bindlestiff Studio opened its new theater at its original location of 185 Sixth Street with the full support of the City of San Francisco and the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency in September 2011.
Bindlestiff Studio provides Filipino Americans access to diverse offerings in performing arts in a district that is poised to infuse an exhilarating new cultural scene into San Francisco. Today, our organization serves and engages Pilipino and Filipino American artists of various arts disciplines, reaching over 1500 audience members annually. It continues to evolve as a theater for the community while developing into an innovative hothouse of new artists and creative, cutting-edge works.
