TACO TRUCK THEATER / TEATRO SIN FRONTERAS

  • Ashé Cultural Arts Center 1712 Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard New Orleans, LA, 70113 United States (map)

Admission: $10

A radical theater-on-wheels ensemble performance, exploring the anti-immigrant hysteria gripping the United States of Amnesia, with tacos & vegan soul food for sale.

Driven by an eclectic music sound-bed that will stir your soul and a street vibe with tacos and vegan soul food for sale, the Taco Truck Theater on wheels explores the human stories of a people in search of an elusive "American Dream" and challenges the anti-immigrant hysteria griping the United States of Amnesia. The diverse and bilingual ArteFuturo Ensemble offers a parallel between Latina/no immigrants dehumanized as "illegal aliens" and the historical struggles of African Americans with a national crisis of police shootings of unarmed black civilians. 

The Taco Truck Theater ArteFuturo Ensemble is led by award-wining 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 each performance begins. For tickets or moe information, call (504) 232-2968.
