ABOUT El Puente
Exploring the connections and separations that occur in our community, El Puente, or The Bridge, features multidisciplinary, multigenerational, multicultural performers from the Ciudad Juárez, MX-El Paso, US border region. To intimately tell their border story, performers Nancy Green, Telón de Arena, James Magee, Jennifer Burton, David Delgado, Julio Mena, and MC Vera-Z draw from their personal and artistic experiences to create a dialogue—between themselves, their culture, and their audience. A sound piece inspired by the natural, mechanical, and human sounds of our border serves as both a background and connector for spoken word, dance, music, and performance. We invite you to cross this cultural bridge with us in El Puente.
