You are invited into the live online studio audience of American Dreams, a game show where you, the people, decides which contestant will receive the ultimate prize: instant citizenship to “the greatest nation on earth”.
Weaving audience engagement throughout four rounds of voting and more, this playful participatory performance takes a page from America’s favorite game shows while exploring who and what we choose to believe—and how those choices come to shape who we are.
Welcome to American Dreams. “It’s a Game. It’s a Show. It’s America!”
