Amores Fronterizos

To support Las Fronterizas in the creation, development, and production of “Mis Amores Fronterizos,” a multidisciplinary performance scheduled for March 2020 at the US / Mexico border in Douglas, AZ and Agua Prieta, SON. The ensemble, comprised of youth and adult artists from Sonora and Arizona, will engage intergenerational community members on both sides of the border in the creative interpretation of local narratives through dance, theatre, and video, to center stories of love that moves and dissolves literal and figurative borders. The culminating performance will take place simultaneously on both sides of the U.S./México border fence in Douglas/Agua Prieta.
