Juarez: A Documentary Mythology

When: Sat., Dec. 3, 8-10 p.m. 2016

This riveting work of theater explores the border community of Cuidad Juárez, Mexico and El Paso, TX — one a hot zone of the drug cartel wars, the other, directly across the border, the self-proclaimed “Safest Large City in America.” Led by Juárez-born and -raised Founding Artistic Director Rubén Polendo, Theater Mitu’s company members condensed hundreds of hours of interviews and field recordings from both cities. Drawing on their research, JUÁREZ: A Documentary Mythology illuminates the region’s memories, hopes, and fears.

Price: $18/$12 in advance/$24 preferred/$10 students
