MOCA Tucson

Bus Stop Dreaming was the seminal series of multidisciplinary performances that eventually became Dreams and Silhouettes/Sueños y Silhuetas. Iterations of Bus Stop appeared at community sites around Tucson in response to the ongoing deportations of thousands of undocumented immigrants in the city. Bus Stop was made possible in part by the MAP Fund and the P.L.A.C.E./Open Society Fund from the Tucson Pima Arts Council.
