Borderlands Theater Presents: NOGALES by: Richard Montoya

NOGALES: STORYTELLERS IN CARTEL COUNTRY

Written by Richard Montoya

Directed by Sean San Jose

Richard Montoya (American Night, Water & Power) of the acclaimed Chicano performance troupe Culture Clash (Bowl of Beans, Chavez Ravine) and ensemble members from San Francisco’s Campo Santo collaborate with Borderlands artists to unpack the story of a Nogales boy, shot in the back 15 times by a US Border patrol agent. Interviews with family members, Tohono O’odham community, gun enthusiasts, street kids, and Sheriff Joe Arpaio himself mix with multiple video projections, visual art installations, and ample humor to go beyond the headlines to explore this real life tragicomic theater of the border.

California artists Montoya, Sean San Jose, and filmographer Joan Osato traveled to Phoenix and on through to Nogales Mexico to immerse themselves in the border region. The play is the product of conversations with the people they met as they traversed the border landscape. Tucson may recognize a few locals as characters in the play like former TPAC executive director Roberto Bedoya, and Kat Rodriguez from the Colibri Center for human rights.

Nogales is told in full focus of poetic text, clinical language, film/video, song, dance, spoken word, dreams and nightmare escapes.
