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.
Hilarious and deliciously biting, this play brings love, piñatas, and donuts to the fight against injustice, hatred, and oppression in all its flavors (but especially the orange-tinged variety). Using poetry, stand-up comedy, and sweaty go-go dance vibes, writer, performer, and comedian Baruch Porras Hernandez shares stories of his journey as a Queer Latino boy growing up in Toluca, Mexico, and immigrating to California. Grab your party hat and get ready to take a bite of this deep-fried, frosted goodness!
