PERFORMANCE
Hoy Tengo Ganas de Mi is a dystopic short play that explores how a highly intelligent machine capable of predicting human behaviors and situational outcomes with near-perfect accuracy influences an American traveler's experience of Mexico and Mexican culture. Written by Scotty Wagner, a workshop presentation of the piece will take place in collaboration with other Artists-in-Residence Marcos Castro, Alicia Reyes McNamara, and Joseph Wilcox.

ALL-AGES ART ACTIVITY
