Aliens and Immigrants: performance 7/20/2013 with artist, Jose Torres-Tama

Tomorrow evening, I am honored to be involved in a collaboration with all-around visual and performance artist, Jose Torres-Tama at Barristers Gallery, New Orleans. We will be performing selections from the Aliens Performance project. The theme is the ongoing difficulties of immigrant workers to gain a voice in the cultural landscape of New Orleans despite their massive contribution to the reconstruction and revivication of the city after hurricane Katrina and the injustices of identity manipulation from American ignorance.   The performance will happen amidst the opening of Torres-Tama's gallery exhibit of his other related photographs, paintings and other artworks.
