If you missed our first two live performances in 2013, here’s a great opportunity to connect with our work!

nos(otros) ¡somos!, is a full length multimedia performance that presents the multiple facets of the immigration experience by first voices. The live concert was originally presented at Lady Base Gallery, formerly housed at Gallista Art Gallery, followed by the Esperanza Peace and Justice Center in July and November of 2013, respectfully.

nos(otros) ¡somos! was produced by local artist and current Jump-Start Performance Company member Fabiola Torralba who utilizes movement as a vehicle for community building, civic engagement, and social-cultural awareness with co-direction from company members and performers including Karen Becerril, C.E.C.M., Mario S. Espinosa, Araceli Herrera of Domesticas Unidas, Allan Horwath and Liliana Horwath of Horwath Productions, Eleonor Maciel, Gabriel Medina, Allis Angela Ozornia, Francisco Javier Sanchez, Melissa Toscano Lazcano, and Karim Zomar of AV Expression.

The group of performers is comprised of musicians, actors, dancers, activists, teachers, multi-media designers, and organizers who share their immigration stories as a source of testimony, reflection, and call to action. Originally created to diversify the conversation on immigrant experiences, the cast invites the public to a video screening of the live performance to celebrate their 2 year anniversary, observe, reflect, and continue the dialogue of how local residents can remain engaged in their communities on issues of immigration.
