New Orleans performance activist Jose Torres-Tama wants 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 “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.
