Border
Border’s Edge “Happening” Next Week!

Borderlands Theater showcases Tucson’s avant-garde performance community in its  
latest venture, Border’s Edge: On the Edges of Performance. The stellar showcase features a mind-bending, interdisciplinary, multimedia experience with performers, as living museum pieces, taking over the outdoor courtyard of Borderlands Theater’s office building.

 

Performance artist Denise Uyehara will dawn a giant paper kimono with twenty foot long arms as part of a piece called Jomon/Jámon which examines Okinawan identity and authenticity. Milta Ortiz explores marriage and feminine identity in her experimental performance piece.Natalie Nguyen and Selena Tang of Flight School Acrobatics perform a duet called Double Crossers that plays with twins, acrobatics, and the Asian female action heroine archetype. Interwoven throughout the night, spoken word poets Enrique Garcia and Logan Philips read from their recently published books, Tortoise Boy Says and Sonoran Strange, respectively.
Border’s Edge is a fundraiser for Borderlands Theater. All performers have generously donated their time and creative efforts.

Ausente 
El Ausente at Global Justice Center!

 

Pay what you can. Spread the word!

Pablo migrates from Mexico City to the USA, leaving his elderly parents to care for his wife and two children. El Ausente / Absence uses subtle humor, a genre seldom used in plays about migration, to explore the question of what happens to those left behind.

Blu
blu at the University of Arizona!
 

Producing Director Marc Pinate directs Virginia Grise’s blu, which plays 4 nights at U of A’s School of Theatre.

blu is an epic poem for the stage and traces the explosive after-effects of prison and hunger, desire and war. The play follows a queer Chicana/o family as they try to envision an earth and sky without police and their helicopters

Virginia Grise’s vital, cultural play, “blu”, opens Thursday, February 26th, at 8pm, & runs through Sunday’s matinee, March 1, at 2pm. Tickets are ridiculously affordable at $7 each & all seats are VIP in a 66-seat theatre.

There is a post-show discussion with cast members after each performance & they are guaranteed to be riveting. Plus, playwright Ms. Grise will be at opening night!

The entire run of “blu” is dedicated to the memory of esteemed UA professor & colleague, Richard Ruiz.

Location: Harold Dixon Directing Studio, Drama Bldg, Rm #116, on the UA campus (SE corner of Speedway Blvd/Park)

Enjoy the show!
