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 stories, performers Nancy Green, Telón de Arena, James Magee, Tereso Contreras, Jennifer Burton, David Delgado, Julio Mena, and Cassandro el Exótico 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.

Free, reservation required. Register online or with Guest Services at 479.657.2335.
