Becoming Conocido

Becoming Conocido

CalArts Festival Theatre

What life details could be used to determine who one is? How much does language, schooling or parenting shape the culture one grows up in? Confronted by the choices on the ethnicity portion of her school application, Jennifer searches through childhood memories and photographs for the answer. Challenged by her past, Jennifer realises identifying herself may not be as easy

as she thought. Through sound clips and projected images, Becoming Conocido journeys through Jennifer’s history, never concealing those parts of the past she wishes to forget.
