Where:
Historic Asolo Theater

 

This Mexico-city based theater ensemble has created a suite of works that explore ideas of democracy in the 21st Century, and blends them with narrative collages from Mexican history. The solo work Tijuana is the staged result of a real anthropological theater experiment undertaken by Lagartijas ensemble member Gabino Rodríguez, in which he abandoned his life in Mexico City to work on an assembly line in a Tijuana factory on the U.S. border. Passing under a false identity for six months, he earned the legal minimum wage to explore how the current day Mexican working class survives. 

Please Note: Tijuana is performed in Spanish with English supertitles.
