Scenes Unseen
Are you a virtuous woman? Do you intend to live a virtuous life in the United States? Do you know that you are at liberty now to go to the United States, or remain in your own country, and that you cannot be forced to go away from your home? Answer questions correctly and supply proper documentation to enter the spaces of Scenes Unseen

This production invites you to reenact the dramas of race, queerness, and nationality at such sites as the 1931 La Placita immigration raid in Los Angeles; the San Pedro, California Detention Center that claimed Victoria Arellano's life; the commandeered military installation at Subic Bay, Philippines; a border-crossing played out by you, the audience; and much more!

Featuring drag legend Miss Barbie Q, featured in Lady Gaga's "Telephone" video; performer, alchemist, and writer Byron Jose; co-producers Irina Contreras and Nico Dacumos; genre-expanding choreographer Ms. Cherry Galette; couturier and idea man Diego G√≥mez; hip hop visionary Juba Kalamka; experimental dance-theater by Ri Molnar; milagros and stories by Angel of Change Bamby Salcedo; diasporic warrior Amitis Motevalli as Sand Ninja; poison cupcake McLendell "Skye" Silvano;  Kristina Wong, described as "brutal but hilarious" by East Bay Express; and up and coming Jill of all trades Zouzou.

Refreshments and discussion will follow the performance.
