Borderlands Theater 2012-2013


Wind in the Shadows: Mi Boca Abierta



 A New Play Written, Devised and Directed by  

Alida Holguín Wilson-Gunn


Listen, the wind is blowing...

Like forgotten ash in burrows underground, so are stories from our youth.  These voices stir and swirl through theatrical storytelling, movement and spoken word, into an original touring script.






  The Coyote y Culebra Youth Project's Wind in the Shadows: Mi Boca Abierta, is designed to empower students by nurturing their voices through writing, 

beyond academic confines.    

Now in its 8th year, this program employs classroom

workshops to create fresh new theater. Sharing their own stories gives students an opportunity to learn more about one another while teaching valuable lessons through collaboration, theater games, writing

and story telling activities.


This season the Coyote Project partnered with: Poet, Logan Phillips; the Ajo Community Players; ISDA

Las Artes GED program students; AUSD students; and students with Desert View High School. These tales of life are celebrated and interpreted with professional and community actors through drama, improv, and theatrical storytelling.


March 23rd 2pm Only!

  $5 Students & Desert View Family Members, $7 General

2012-13 Season


Chicas Desenfrenadas

y Vatos Perdidos/

Unstoppable Chicas and Lost Vatos



Tlaltecuhtli, the ancient Aztec Earth Goddess of birth and death, both

kind and terrifying, blesses our 27th season. In our three plays, two young women and one young man

respond to the wispers of voices from the past, and with others struggle to overcome their own demons by converting these whispers into

shouts and song.
