Who Shot La Miguelito?, 2019.
This dynamic performance piece, written and directed by Sean San José, parallels the murder of a young street artist in San Francisco’s Mission District with the death of immigrant, working-class neighborhoods. Mapping the Mission in murals, tags, stickers, stencils, and socio-political protest art, the piece invites the audience to see, hear, and move with refugees, immigrants, first gens—and ghosts. Originally created for the San Francisco performance group Campo Santo, the piece was made anew for UC Berkeley with an original score, immersive design, and incorporated student stories.
