IMMIGRATION ISSUES COMMUNITY GATHERING:

José Torres Tama will be coming to Tulsa and is wanting to gather people at Living Arts on Tuesday, October 29, at 7pm for a Community Meeting to discuss what experiences people in this area of the country might have concerning Immigration Issues.

ON SATURDAY, NOV 2 José Torres-Tama will perform his piece "Aliens, Immigrants and Other Evildoers" at Living Arts, 8pm.

Part of the appeal of popular science fiction is the way it allows an examination of race relations outside of our cultural associations — Klingons and Vulcans working side by side in Star Trek, or the Star Wars cantina scene, for instance, transcend contemporary society’s woes and give audiences a sense of perspective.

José Torres-Tama, a New Orleans-based performance artist who is coming to Nashville as part of Vanderbilt’s Great Performances series, explores this transcendence and turns it on its head in his piece Aliens, Immigrants and Other Evildoers, which approaches illegal immigrants as science fiction “aliens.” The absurd double meaning of the homonym matches the paradox of contemporary American culture’s dependence on/revulsion at Latino immigrants.
