Teatro Jornalero is an Oakland based ensemble theater group made up of day laborers that uses theater, music, and dialogue to educate immigrant workers about their rights. The ensemble works to humanize the immigration debate and empower their community by reflecting their stories in their own voices.

This offering will be held entirely in Spanish with live English translations.

It will be hosted by Azucena Rasilla, bilingual journalist for The Oaklandside and a longtime reporter on Oakland arts, culture and community. The production will be followed by an informal talk back with the players and production collaborators.

Spotlight Sundays: Undocumented Heart is a part of our exhibition programming for OMCA’s major exhibition, Por el Pueblo: The Legacy and Influence of Malaquias Montoya.
