Taco Truck Theater: The Immigrant Experience as Performance Art

May 17, 2017

This edition of ST features a discussion with José Torres-Tama, the New Orleans-based performance artist who will soon present his Taco Truck Theater / Teatro Sin Fronteras project at Living Arts of Tulsa. This production will be staged on Thursday and Friday, the 18th and 19th, with both shows starting at 8pm. Also on our program is the local poet Amairani Perez, who will be one of the Tulsa-based artists participating in this project. As noted of this project at the Living Arts website: "The Taco Truck Theater is the culmination of Torres-Tama’s four-year development in Tulsa with stories from his interview process informing the experience of local immigrants, and as part of a goal to cultivate Tulsa’s Latina/no voices, poets and activists Sally Ramirez, Amairani Perez, and Jordan Mazariegos make up the full ArteFuturo Ensemble.... The Taco Truck Theater / Teatro Sin Fronteras is a national touring project that will travel across the country, [bringing] this timely radical dinner theater on wheels to a hungry Barrio near you! Their battle cry is 'NO GUACAMOLE For Immigrant Haters!'"
