FRONTERIZAPerformed by Cristi Miles
SEPTEMBER 11 & 13
Performed by Cristi Miles
Galvanized by the current global immigration crisis and artist Cristi Miles’ personal experience growing up Mexican/American in El Paso/Juárez, Fronteriza describes the complex personality of borders and borderlands. Told in Spanish and English, this one woman performance talks about needing a new home, getting there, and still having an arduous journey ahead. It is a story of colonization, immigration, and how to heal from our ancestral wounds. It is a story of how we can reconcile by bearing witness. Fronteriza will be presented live on Sunday September 11 and Tuesday September 13 at 7:30pm.
Originally Produced for the virtual stage by Portland Experimental Theatre Ensemble (PETE)
