Using Documentary Theatre to Address Social Justice Issues

10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice Theatre

PLACAS: The Most Dangerous Tattoo is a documentary play that depicts one family's struggle to overcome a history of violence.  It features the experience of a man who fled the civil war in El Salvador as a child only to find himself caught in the gang wars of California. This transformative story of redemption centers on his determination to reunite his family after surviving war, immigration, deportation, prison and street violence. Join us for a live excerpt of the play, followed by a discussion with a panel of experts, including:
  • Paul S. Flores, a published poet, performance artist and the playwright of PLACAS.
  • Alex Sanchez, co-founder and director of Homies Unidos, an organization that develops and implements violence prevention and intervention programs. The documentary play PLACAS is based on his life.
  • Jerry Tello, founder of the National Compadres Network and an international leader on community resilience and healing.
  • Evelyn Diaz Cruz, MFA, USD Theatre Department, whose work focuses on community engagement by addressing issues of social justice through art.
  • PLACAS cast members

Event is free and open to the public.
