The Frontera Project is an interactive, bilingual theater experience, created and performed by a company of Mexican and US artists. They use theater, music, movement and play to actively engage the audience in a compassionate, often joyous conversation about life at the US/Mexico Border.

The Frontera Project does not tell one Big Story. Rather, the work builds a mosaic of many small stories that celebrates the richness and contradictions of Fronterizo life. Specifically focused on Tijuana/San Diego, The Frontera Project explores the varied experiences of people on both sides of the Border – for audiences who may never have been there themselves.

The Frontera Project es una experiencia teatral interactiva y bilingüe, que incopora además la música y el juego para involucrar activamente al público en una conversación integral sobre la vida en la frontera México/Estados Unidos, más allá de la situación política y la realidad mostrada en los medios de comunicación. 

De esta manera, más que contar una sola historia, se construye un mosaico de pequeñas anécdotas (personales y ficcionadas) que celebran la riqueza y las contradicciones de la vida fronteriza, particularmente en las ciudades de Tijuana/San Diego, recreando experiencias diversas de personas en ambos lados de la frontera para públicos que quizá nunca han estado ahí.
