A choose your own adventure site specific theatrical festival re-inhabits downtown Nogales with theatrical installations, large scale projections, music, based on oral histories from long time Ambos Nogales residents, and culminates with a couple alternating fronterizo bands.

Barrio Stories is a celebration of the history and heritage of Arizona’s historic Mexican-American neighborhoods. Conceived by Borderlands Theater in 2015, the project is an ongoing site-specific series intended to preserve and reflect the stories, people, and places that made these barrios so vital to the cultural fabric of the Southwest.
