The Dreamers: Aquí y Allá is A devised theatre piece on immigration, racism and DACA recipients reconnecting with their first home. The Dreamers: Aquí y Allá is a devised theatre piece Andrea is creating in collaboration with the California-Mexico Studies Center. Andrea traveled to Mexico with CSULB Theatre Arts students to interview a group of DACA students who were given permission through advance parole to return to their homeland, a permission no longer being given from the current administration. The play follows these young Dreamers but also incorporates interviews from U.S. Congressman Alan Lowenthal, an immigration rights attorney, a border patrol agent, and more.
