Special Friday Post: “Forbidden Future(s)”

Hey everyone!

I did not at all anticipate writing an off-schedule post this week, but much like the announcement I have, life throws unexpected opportunities at you.

So there’s a show that’s coming up at Bindlestiff Studio next month called “Forbidden Future(s): Filipino Diaspora in a Forsaken World.” Over the course of three one-act plays all set in a cyberpunk dystopian world, the production combines elements of live music, theater, and shadow puppetry to explore the Filipino Disapora in such a universe.

I am a very recent addition to the production, not as a writer, but as an actor. I have a minor role as an assailant in one of the plays; specifically “To Dust We Return,” which was written by mgb and directed by Judith Ferrer. This will be my first time performing in a production at Bindlestiff, and given with what I have to work with, I’m very excited for it.

I don’t know to what lengths I’ll write about this experience on my blog just yet, but if you are interested in seeing “Forbidden Future(s),” it is having its six-performance run from October 11th-20th. If you live in or will be in the San Francisco Bay Area at this time and want to come see it, tickets can be purchased here.

That’s about it for now. I’ll be back tomorrow with my regularly scheduled Saturday blog post.
