Barrio Stories is a celebration of the history and heritage of Arizona’s historic Mexican-American neighborhoods. Conceived by Borderlands Theater in 2015, the project is an ongoing site-specific series intended to preserve and reflect the stories, people, and places that made these barrios so vital to the cultural fabric of the Southwest. Barrios Viejo (also known as “La Calle”) and Anita became the primary subjects of the Borderlands Theater project, each taking on a different process and presentation.
