"Aliens, Immigrants, and other Evildoers" by Jose Torrés-Tama in DC this weekend

At the Gala Hispanic Theatre in Colombia Heights DC. The Washington CityPaper says, "The piece, titled “Aliens, Immigrants, & Other Evildoers” is billed as a “sci-fi Latino noir, multimedia solo" I plan on attending this weekend, looks to be a cool forward-thinking piece that takes the immigrant issues for Latinidad and uses different motifs to convey the tragedy and issues affecting us here. While I'm a bit bored of the limited range of topics we are allowed to transmit to the other in large venues, where its seems that any national discourse of Latinos is absurdly relegated to only immigration issues... it has some potential, maybe a transition phase towards the AmericanPupusa? Check his blog and site which definitely looks super AmericanPupusa!
The piece appears at 8 p.m. March 4 and 5 at GALA Hispanic Theatre, 3333 14th St., NW. (202) 234-7174. The piece is bi-lingual
