A group of Latin American immigrants gather in a community center for a fandango – a festive celebration where stories are brought to life through live performance, music and dance. The group bonds over the concern for their loved ones in the middle of their dangerous journey to the US and worry for their families left behind in their home countries. But amid the cheerful preparations and warm greetings of friends old and new, fears of a city-wide ICE raid permeate the party. Yet in the spirit of the fandango, their resilience and camaraderie grows as strangers become friends, friends become family, and the music plays on. Inspired by interviews with immigrants, this joy-filled play with music is a heartfelt look in to the lives of the real people behind the immigration headlines.
