Sueños de America is based on the book of the same title by Peruvian author Eduardo González Viaña and adapted for the stage by Carlos Vargas Salgado. This play depicts the stories of five immigrants coming to America for different reasons to realize their dreams. They come for love, freedom, hope or to escape from misfortune, but all face adversity in a world that calls them illegal. The show presented by Aviñón Teatro features two actors, Nelly Pilares and Carlos Vargas and incorporates shadow puppetry and video imagery. This performance is presented in Spanish with open captioning in English.
