MAWA Presents: Theory + Beer - Artificiality of the American Dream w/ Albyn Carias

  • Duke of Kent Legion 227 McDermot Avenue Winnipeg Canada (map)

Free, everyone welcome to attend!

Probing what is widely termed the “American Dream,” Dovey Martinez draws upon her personal and familial experiences as a Honduran American to examine the expectations individuals have when they immigrate and when those expectations do not deliver. A correlation between the bakery and the “American Dream” is made, exposing its sweetness and allure as artificial. This Theory and Beer will be a discussion of the pressure of immigration on individuals, their children and families; the irony of being a cultural producer in Canada from another culture; and how we are impacted by the narrative of the “American Dream.”
