World Premiere, Evening length work at FringeArts
How you get there isn’t the point. The Door in the Desert has been here all along. Unlock it, and for a moment you and it are one, fused together in a non-social space that has some cows around. You tumble past cactuses that hurt in a strangely predictable way if you prick yourself on them. Unfamiliar faces greet you, but their unknown language is not an obstacle. You understand everything now: not all who are lost wander. Not all who are tired sleep.
But some people who are tired do sleep.
But just some of them.
Presented as part of Mexican Week -- and presented as one of the full-length works created during the FRONTERAS platform -- A Door in the Desert is an acrobatic journey through transcendence and back, earnestly questioning why we divide and label ourselves.
What do we owe our neighbors? ¿Que debemos a nuestros vecinos?
