UndocuStories: Journeys of Justice & Freedom is the culmination of an eight week theater workshop by members of the undocumented immigrant community and allies. This evening of original theater, sketches, movement and poetry will showcase the incredible power of the immigrant community! Over the course of eight weeks, immigrants and allies delved into the issues impacting the immigrant community to create this original visionary piece. Grounded in community, and utilizing comedy and theatre of the oppressed, this performance shifts the dominant narrative of the undocumented community.
Join us for a night of laughter, reflection, and power! Translation for the performance is available in Korean, Tagalog and Spanish. Please request translation ahead of time. The doors will open at 6:30 pm for guests.
This project was made possible by a generous Artist-in-Residence grant from the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs. The workshop was facilitated by artist and comedian Kristina Wong, with guest artist Jessica Emmanuel, and hosted by the Dream Resource Center. Contributing guests speakers at the workshop include: Yael Pineda, Betty Jaspeado, and Mario Escobar. Participants starring in the performance include: Ghislaine Dwarka, Ana Lujan, Aldair Arriola Gomez, Ayala Gray, Georgina Rios Escobar, and Gustavo A. Guerra Vasquez.
