This play is about immigrants and more particularly about a young one who arrives straight to Times Square, and from there, has an adventure that you could never imagine.

Latin Times Square is filled with songs, dances and small human stories of Latinos who try to excel and survive in this concrete jungle.

As an immigrant, we are sure that you will also recognize yourself in some of the sad, funny, festive and real as life itself scenes.

 

The message is structured to serve as an example of the way of life of migrants here in the United States and any foreign country. Scenes of domestic violence, labor abuse, sexual harassment, discrimination, hate crimes, marginalization and stereotypes are combined with songs and dances that describe what the immigrant lived and suffered for the so-called "American dream".

Sadalekos Presents
Invasion 1897
Red Carpet Film Screening and After Party



Lancelot Oduwa Imasuen’s Invasion 1897 dishes out a cocktail of emotion, tragedy, and war. This critically acclaimed film tells the true story of the British Expedition of 1897, a punitive expedition led by Admiral Sir Harry Rawson to retaliate the murders of eight British representatives who visited Benin Kingdom (which was then ruled by Oba Ovoranmwen) to seek control over its trade. In order to strip the Benin people of their culture and history, Rawson’s troops illegally removed the precious Benin Bronzes and metal plaques that once decorated the Benin royal palace, including the famous 16th century commemorative head and pendant of ivory mask representing Queen Idia (which the FESTAC Mask is replication of). The commemorative head currently resides in the British Museum and the pendant in New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art.

This crucial moment in Nigerian history marked the climax of the inordinate exploitation of Africans by the West that ultimately led to the division of the continent amongst European powers.

Sunday, August 23
Red Carpet Event: 5pm
Screening: 6-7:30 PM
After Party/ Meet & Greet with the cast and director: 8-10 PM

Event Fee:
- $30 (Adults)
