Driven by an eclectic music sound-bed, this radical theater on wheels explores the anti-immigrant hysteria gripping the United States of Amnesia with a diverse and bilingual ArteFuturo Ensemble that offers a parallel between Latina/no immigrants stripped of their humanity as «illegal aliens», and the historical struggle of African Americans in a system that sees them as less than human with a national crisis of police shootings of unarmed black civilians. With live music accompanying the collective performance rituals and a street theater vibe with tacos and vegan soul food being sold, they proclaim that, «No human being is illegal!» They align with the «BLACK LIVES MATTER Movement» to explore the parallel struggle of people of color in a system that has historically denied equal access to its Black and Brown citizens.

«NO GUACAMOLE for Immigrant Haters!»

The Taco Truck Theater ArteFuturo Ensemble is led by MAP fund and NEA award-winning performance artist José Torres-Tama, and includes New Orleans’ artists Monica “Spirit” McIntyre, cellist, vocalist, and poet, Natalie “La Sirena” Jones, singer, writer, and performer, Mwende “FreeQuency” Katwiwa, spoken word poet and activist, Michael “La Bestia” Ward-Bergeman, accordionist and drummer,, and featuring Darius & Diego Torres-Copeland, singers and performers.

FOOD: Tacos by Heidi will offer a menu of healthy Latino foods and For Wholeness Sake offers vegan soul food. All food is available one hour before the performance begins at 7pm.
