Bindlestiff Studio Presents TAGALOG 2017, 7/13-29
San Francisco, CA-- Join us in the heart of the SOMA Pilipinas Cultural District for Bindlestiff Studio's production of TAGALOG 2017, a collection of one-act plays written and performed in the national language of the Philippines. With the creative use of live English surtitles, non-Tagalog-speaking patrons alike can enjoy the innovative, brave, and new voices selected from the prestigious Virgin Labfest of the Cultural Center of the Philippines. The annual festival celebrates the best unproduced, experimental works from emerging Filipino playwrights, and Bindlestiff Studio is proud to pair their works on this side of the Pacific with talented local Bay Area artists.
