TuYo Theatre wants to share stories about Latinx immigrants who are or have been undocumented in the U.S. “UN”: a documented Project aspires to reclaim what it means to be American by giving voice to the undocumented, Dreamers, DACA recipients,  and all Latinxs who’ve been disenfranchised around citizenship. By collecting “mitos” (personal narratives), we hope to contribute to the national conversation around immigration by demystifying and illuminating the lives of our people.


This project is in an early phase of envisioning and planning. Our goal is to include anyone/everyone who is or has been an undocumented immigrant and wishes to respond by inviting them into the development process. Latinx writers from around the country will read your answers for inspiration and clarity as they create original pieces that honor your experience. TuYo Theatre is planning for a series of performances that stretch across two weekends in Spring 2019. These will take place in a public space for either free or low-cost admission. Any proceeds raised will go towards the organization’s future programming. This production will play between stage and screen across various forms of performance. All will be welcome to attend.
