Abstract

Looking Through the Lens: Immigrants and Their Stories This performance will attempt to answer the question: What is the immigrant experience? The purpose of this performance will be to share the immigrant experience with the student body of Georgia College. This performance is meant to share real life stories and experiences of Hispanic Immigrants. Through portraying their experiences and stories, this performance intends to open a conversation and provide a perspective to students in what is like to be an immigrant in America. The performance will also integrate stereotypes and assumptions that Americans hold of Hispanic immigrants. The performance will speak to how immigrants influence our culture, politics, and economy. The research methodology I relied on performance ethnography. I went into the field and interviewed immigrants of different genders, sexualities and ages. In addition, I researched the anti-immigration agenda through published interviews. The results of my ethnographic research will be discussed in the context of performance.
