This ten-minute video profiles the “Latino Youth Theater Project” launched in 2012 by performance artist and theater arts educator José Torres-Tama in collaboration with PUENTES New Orleans, and with the valuable funding support of the a Community Art Award from the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation, inc. The after-school workshops introduced Latino and African American youth from Metro New Orleans skill development in creative writing, performance art, and ensemble theater. Torres-Tama guided a dozen teens to create an original performance, written and performed by the participants, that explored their search for the “American Dream”, and their personal respones to the anti-immigrant hysteria gripping the country and its effect on Latinos who have helped to rebuild post-Katrina New Orleans. The project had teens from Honduras, Mexico, El Salvador, Columbia, and Guatemala performing a bilingual piece called “El Sueño Americano Revisado/The Anerican Dream Revisited”. The Latino Youth Theater Project is the only project of its kind in New Orleans and the state of Louisiana offering free theater and creative writing workshops to a growing population of Latino youth.
