n this monthly work-in-progress showing, renowned performance artist and activist Sanchez will develop his upcoming production, XIV, which premieres at Dixon Place in June 2019. The show melds autobiography and history to convey the injustices racialized communities face as they fight for 'equal protection of the laws'. Revolving around a 1946 class action lawsuit by 5 Mexican-American families to have their children enrolled in Orange County, CA public schools by applying the 14th Amendment, XIV serves as a creative counterpoint to the current events surrounding the realities of undocumented 'dreamers' and the vitriolic calls for building a Wall. This month's showing features a guest appearance by Jimmie Briggs.
