Raíces: El libro de los caminos / Roots: The Book of Journeys

A performer dressed in blue with three large balloons and a performer dressed in white jumping on a city street at nightTeatro Visión is partnering with Mexico City street theater ensemble La Quinta Teatro to create a brand new work of theater about migration as a boundless journey. We’re calling this new work Raíces: el libro de los caminos (Roots: The Book of Journeys).
We invite you to be a part of the conversation by joining our El Convite series of binational conversations between the communities of México and the United States.
Watch some of the theatrical experiments that are underway:
