On demand June 18 – July 16, 2021
About WET: A DACAmented Journey
WET: A DACAmented Journey is a true story of what it means to be an American in every sense of the word except one: on paper. Award-winning actor, director, spoken word artist and teaching artist Alex Alpharaoh knows firsthand the emotional and psychological hardship of this unending process and risked his own freedom to share his story in a nationwide tour. Now captured at the Kirk Douglas Theatre for a presentation on Center Theatre Group’s Digital Stage, WET rockets between hilarity and heartbreak to capture one man’s travels to a home country he’d never known as part of his relentless journey toward becoming a documented citizen of the United States.
Join us for Defying Borders: How Immigration Policies Impact Theatre, On and Off the Stage as three theatre artists—Alex Alpharaoh, Leslie Ishii, and Kemiyondo Coutinho along with moderator Alex Meda—discuss the impact that America’s immigrations policies continue to have on not only their lived experiences but also the art they are creating for the stage.
This event is part of Center Theatre Group’s The Forum, a series of deep and uplifting discussions with artists and creators as we move American Theatre forward.
