Bindlestiff Studio presents Aureen Almario’s SIGAW: A SHADOWPLAY that shines light on the dark side of care work.

The export of care has haunted the Filipina narrative, but what happens when care hits a breaking point? Sigaw, meaning scream, shout, or cry, is the story of Marissa who travels thousands of miles to work for a family in the United States.  Inspired by the controversial The Atlantic article “A Story of Slavery in Modern America” by Alex Tizon on the tragic experience of Eudocia Tomas Pulido, and interviews with current domestic workers. This fictional story explores the blurred boundaries of agency and obligation, of power and oppression, and of love and labor.

Single tickets range from $15-$30. Pay-What-You-Can Community Preview Night, July 18th.

Sponsored by the San Francisco Arts Commission
