Bindlestiff Studio’s Chasing Papeles brings to light the largely hidden and unspoken experiences of undocumented Filipina immigrants. Through spoken word, music, movement, and shadow puppetry, Chasing Papeles vividly reflects on the hopes, dreams and disillusions of chasing the American Dream. Primarily set in a senior care home in the San Francisco SOMA district, Chasing Papeles presents the highly relevant experiences of undocumented immigrants in the heart of the SOMA Pilipinas Cultural Heritage District.
Inspired by “Pandanggo sa Ilaw”, Sayaw sa Ilaw aims to contemporize and reframe this dance of lights to honor the rise and resilience of our communities rooted in SOMA Pilipinas.
