Aliens, Immigrants, & Other Evil Doers

April 5, 2019 - April 6, 2019

A sci-fi Latino noir solo show by MAP Fund award-winning performance artist José Torres-Tama that takes the Immigration issue head on, and challenges the anti-immigrant hysteria. He exposes the hypocrisies of a country that dehumanizes immigrants while readily exploting their labor. Inspired by interviews of immigrants who have crossed the border to escape economical despair and war, he shape-shifts into a variety of voices that humanize a people in search of a dream. ALIENS is profoundly moving, visually dynamic, and provocatively funny with the artist’s comic battle cry:
NO GUACAMOLE for Immigrant haters!

ALIENS was developed through a National Performance Network Creation Fund, and was co-commissioned by MECA in Houston, the Ashé Cultural Arts Center in New Orleans, and GALA Hispanic Theatre in DC.
