PLEASE NOTE: DUE TO LIMITED SEATING AND HIGH INTEREST, THIS PERFORMANCE HAS REACHED CAPACITY AND IS NO LONGER OPEN TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC.

A bilingual dance-theater performance, Cinco Palmas explores frustration with the US-Mexico immigration system, and the bizarre pleasure of helping an undocumented minor travel from Honduras to Los Angeles. Based on actual accounts and audio recordings, this work-in-progress utilizes a layered form of storytelling in which dance, spoken text and supertitles mix and collide in telling a story of borders, immigration and testimony.
