TPA TO GO: PERFORMANCE AT YOUR PLACE
October 2 & 3 at 7:00 p.m. | Interactive Online Performance
Texas Performing Arts presents TPA TO GO, a mini-series of online, interactive performances made for the moment by artists with humor, courage, and fresh perspectives.
You are invited into the live online studio audience of American Dreams, a game show where you, the audience, decide which contestant will receive the ultimate prize: instant citizenship to “the greatest nation on earth”. This playful participatory performance takes a page from America’s favorite game shows and uses voting, polling, trivia and more to explore who and what we choose to believe. Welcome to American Dreams. “It’s a Game. It’s a Show. It’s America!”
American Dreams premiered live at Cleveland Public Theatre in 2018. This fall, the show launches as a live online theater production nationwide in a virtual tour, inviting audiences into playful, timely engagement and dialogue around immigration and what it means to be a citizen of this country.
