A sci-fi “Latino noir” satire, inspired by interviews with immigrants who crossed the border to escape economic despair and war, that spotlights anti-immigrant hysteria. In a visually dynamic, profoundly moving and provocatively funny tour de force, New Orleans-based performance artist José Torres-Tama confronts the immigration issue head-on with a genre-bending multimedia performance incorporating film projections, personal stories and poetic texts, humanizing people in search of a dream, and putting a heart and face on today's immigrant. Limited two week engagement Oct. 24 – Nov. 3 at The Los Angeles Theatre Center, 514 S. Spring St., Los Angeles, CA 90013; $38; For reservations and information, call (866) 811-4111 or go to www.thelatc.org.

The artist bonds with the audience with his lively manner, which is utterly engaging and filled with humor, as he adopts no fewer than nine characters who tell their individual stories...

...It is a revelation of historical fact, and an accounting of the current political situation, all delivered with highly entertaining vigor. José Torres-Tama is a performance artist of the highest calibre.
