UndocuMonologues: Stories from our Undocumented Neighbors
April 8 @ 5:00 pm
In collaboration with the 29th annual Ira C. Rothgerber Conference, “Pursuing Citizenship,”
Motus Theater’s undocumented monologists invite you, via Zoom, into their homes to share
autobiographical stories about their dreams, hopes and fears. Their artfully crafted monologues
interrupt the dehumanizing and racist anti-immigrant narratives around our nation and challenge
people to acknowledge the danger to us all from the current threats facing the undocumented
community, and take action.
Special guest Honorable Mimi Tsankov, National Association of Immigration Judges, will
express moral courage and civic hospitality as she reads aloud the story of an undocumented
person and reflects on seeing the world through the eyes of an immigrant. Two additional Motus
UndocuMonologists will share their own story and each monologue will be followed by a musical
response from Uruguayan musician Elisa Garcia.
Autobiographical monologues by Motus Monologists Armando Peniche, Cristian Solano
Córdova, and Alejandro Fuentes Mena written in collaboration with Motus Theater Artistic
Director, Kirsten Wilson. Performance presented by Motus Theater – creators of
UndocuAmerica, JustUs, Women of Resolution, Rocks Karma Arrows, and the Shoebox Stories
Sponsored by the University of Colorado Boulder’s Byron White Center.
