Taco Truck Theater / Teatro Sin Fronteras

José Torres-Tama & ArteFuturo Productions

 

To support the development of the "Taco Truck Theater / Teatro Sin Fronteras," a project by José Torres-Tama & the ArteFuturo Ensemble. Inspired by Luis Valdez’s legendary Teatro Campesino shows on flatbed trucks in the 70s. Torres-Tama and ArteFuturo will re-purpose a food vehicle into a mobile stage to challenge the current anti-immigrant hysteria gripping the United States and its effects on diverse immigrant communities in New Orleans, Tulsa, and Minneapolis. This radical theater on wheels will traverse racial and geographical borders. Taking on the “Immigration Crisis,” they will challenge the dehumanization of immigrants as “illegal aliens” with a genre-bending ensemble show whose theme is “NO HUMAN BEING IS ILLEGAL!” and there is "NO GUACAMOLE for Immigrant Haters!"
