New Orleans-based performance activist Jose Torres-Tama has a dream: to create a revolutionary Taco Truck Theatre with a simple message: “No guacamole for immigrant haters”. This Taco Truck Kills Fascists weaves two narratives: the classic “against all odds” story of an immigrant artist of color bringing the voices of radical Black performers and undocumented workers out of the shadows and the story of a father struggling to raise his two boys into political consciousness in the Age of Trump.

Seen though the eyes Diego (7) and Darius (10) who become members of their father’s radical performance ensemble, This Taco Truck Kills Fascists invites the audience to navigate with them the line between innocence and knowledge, anger and love, agency and apathy; a challenge we all must face in order to heal our nation’s open wounds. This epic coming of age journey is born out of the urgency of the now and our responsibility to engage and confront white supremacy with the weaponized beauty of Art.
