Teatro del Pueblo and Pangea World Theater present The Political Theatre Festival. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the PTF and will feature two solo works.
Aliens, Immigrants, & Other Evildoers is a sci-fi Latino noir and multimedia solo by award-winning performance artist José Torres-Tama, and it explores the rise in hate crimes against Latinos and the demonization of immigrants across the U.S. Cultivating a sci-fi aesthetic that satirizes the status of the immigrant as an ALIEN, Torres-Tama shape-shifts numerous Latino "extraterrestrials" who bilingually challenge the flaws of a country built by immigrants that vilifies the same people whose labor it exploits. Check out Torres-Tama's website for more information about the show.
