Indoors at the Boyd-Quinson Stage,

Pulsing with energy and emotional intensity, this story about a group of migrants crossing the southern border is raw, visceral and electrifying — demonstrating the personal impact of crossing an “invisible line.” The group faces many dangers, including the coyote — a human smuggler. This new dance musical ingeniously combines compelling lyrics, athletic choreography and elements of Mexican folk music to tell a remarkable tale of courage, fear and struggle.

The production runs 85 minutes without an intermission.
Sponsored in part by Audrey and Ralph Friedner & Rosita Sarnoff and Beth Sapery
