About the show

Imagine that you don’t have a country. It doesn’t matter if you believe you’re American, because no one else believes you. You don’t exist. Worse, you are hunted for deportation. You love this country, but the country does not love you back.

In Dream Acts, five undocumented teens from Nigeria, Mexico, Ukraine, Korea, and Jordan face the extraordinary challenge of living ordinary lives under the radar.

Panel discussion: Sunday, March 25, 5 pm

Re/Union Company and Immigrant Artists and Scholars in New York (IASNY)
