Staged outdoors on the grounds of the Tucson Convention Center, this theatrical spectacle brings to life oral histories of Tucson’s original Mexican American neighborhood demolished with the building of the convention center in the 1960s. Precious memories come to life as audience members take a theatrical tour of what used to be the bustling epicenter of commerce and public celebrations for Tucson’s Mexican-American community (some seating is available.) Four vignettes and performance installations encountered throughout the plaza culminate in an interactive post show pachanga – featuring folklorico and mariachi youth ensembles with interactive art and audio booth for all ages. Barrio Stories takes place March 3-6, 2016, as part of Borderlands’ 30th anniversary season. Complete information at
