About "Undocumented" A play by Katherine Chua

What happens when everything you know is about to be taken away? What can you do when you have to leave the only place you call home? Where do you go when you get tired of hiding, but too scared to run? What do you do when you’re not sure if you’re a victim or a criminal? These are just some of the barriers that young undocumented immigrants must confront. In the multimedia play Undocumented by Katherine Chua, she highlights the inner turmoil of a girl called Frida, who has been found out by the authorities as being in the country illegally. Although she has been living in the U.S. since the age of 8 and is now 25, she will be taken from all she's ever known and deported "home" to her native country. The only light is the possibility of having the DREAM Act bill get passed by legislation. But before Frida can find solace and trust in this bill being past she must find solace, trust and forgiveness in those around her and most importantly herself.

        I will be exhibiting my attempts to capture moments, people and feelings, to make them live forever. I suffer from what Pete Hamill calls nostalgia, or real things gone. Inspirations vary from intimate to plutonic, obsessions to habits and everything in between.
        When I look back at what I chose to capture about someone I loved I am catapulted back in time. I remember how electrifying it is to be in love, in lust, in hate, in hurt. I remember what about the other person that captivated me.
