Abstract

In the play Café, I use the ritualistic tradition of preparing Cuban espresso to symbolize the struggle of constructing cultural identity for many first generation Americans and reconciling familial obligation with individual desire. Through food, spoken word, and movement I want people to question their own cultural upbringing.
