Immigrant Stories

Floricanto Dance Theatre


To support the development and presentation of “Immigrant Stories,” a dance performance based on the stories and experiences of the first, second and third generation immigrants who reside in the neighborhood of East Los Angeles. At a time when these neighborhoods are already undergoing extensive gentrification and displacement, oral testimonies of the residents will serve as documented legacies of who these people are and what they have brought to this community. The project will document through dance the legacy of community identity, ethos and affirmation of the Latino people in East Los Angeles.
