Video 9/15/2018: WET: A DACAmented Journey

WET: A DACAmented Journey is the story of what it means to be an American in every sense of the word except one: on paper. It chronicles Anner Cividanis's journey living his whole life in the United States as an undocumented American. The play captures the desperation that DREAMers feel when considering their very limited options, forced to navigate a broken U.S. immigration system. The play examines the mental, emotional, and psychological hardship one man has to endure in order to secure his livelihood in the only home he has known: Los Angeles. 

This performance will start with a live DJ set from DJ Magic at 5:30 pm.

Presented as a part of the Hip Hop Theater Festival.
