JUMP TO: Dates, Run Time, Playbill, & More

With a nod to the beauty and wonder of a traveling show, Sávila presents Earth Without Borders/Tierra Sin Fronteras, a recorded musical journey celebrating the plant and animal life that thrives along the Mexico/U.S. border. Weaving together song, dance, and visual poetry, this original work carries us through the cycle of a day as the earth spins.

“Their music feels like a warm embrace ... Their songs unfurl in rhythmic, organic layers driven by various Latin rhythms, including cumbia and salsa.” –Willamette Week
