More than a dozen years ago, ASU launched its Performance in the Borderlandsinitiative. The artists who come here are part of the initiative’s mission to understand and promote cultural performance in the borderlands.

This season will include theater as a tool of social engagement and a piece called "Nogales," which will look into a 2012 death along the border.

We learned more about Performance in the Borderlands from its producing director, Mary Stephens, and Tiffany Lopez, director of ASU’s School of Film, Dance and Theatre.
