In 2016, artist José Torres-Tama undertook a project to repurpose a truck into a mobile stage, establishing the Taco Truck Theater and convening a group of actors, musicians, and performers to explore the immigration crisis in New Orleans. José’s company practices devised theater, drawing on their own personal experiences and research among America’s undocumented communities. Among the players are José’s two sons, to whom he acts as a tour guide to Louisiana’s hidden history of injustice and struggle. By turns playful, funky, outraged, and anguished, Jose’s approach to protest art is unapologetic. Through it all, he maintains his steadfast battle-cry: “No Guacamole for Immigrant Haters!” -JK
