About Borderlands Theater

Our Mission

Championing the development and production of new plays while producing plays by established playwrights whose work resonates with the diversity of our audiences; partnering with regional civic organizations to foster diversity (geographic, cultural and ethnic) in play development and productions; and producing diverse and quality programs for youth.

Our Vision

Borderlands Theater is a professional theater company recognized nationally and internationally for the development and production of theater and educational programs that reflect the diverse voices of the U.S./ Mexico border region. Although focusing on the Latino/Chicano/Mexicano voice as the core voice to nurture and support, Borderlands works interactively with all voices of the region. The “border,” both as physical and social landscape, is a metaphor for Borderlands’ work. The metaphor allows, invites and even demands, both a regional and an international understanding of what it represents. Border people, in the best sense of the word, are citizens of the world.

Our History

A Look Back at The Road Behind Us

Over Borderlands’ 31 years of creating theatrical art, we have had the good fortune of collaborating with many artists, community activists and leaders who are historically tied to this unique landscape. Come with us and take a look back at the roads we have traversed.

Together, we will continue to forge a new path through this troubled tierra and work to construct new dialogue to reflect the diverse voices of this region.
