Who Shot La Miguelito?
Department of Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies
University of California, Berkeley
Who Shot La Miguelito? was a dynamic performance piece that paralleled 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 invited 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 and immersive design, and it incorporated student stories through devising processes.
