XIPE Colectivo Escénico

ACHERON: THE RIVER OF TRAGEDY

July 27-30, 2022

XIPE Colectivo Escénico

Directed by Martin Balmaceda
Written by Xavier Villanova

Featuring Aline Lemus Bernal and Cinthia Pérez Navarro

Performed in Spanish with English supertitles.

Leonardo dreams of crossing the Acheron River to live the Death-Dream. But his desires are thwarted when a mysterious migra (immigration agent) prevents his crossing and becomes, at different times, his friend, enemy, guardian, transgressor and even his victim. A poetic, dramatic meditation on identity, migration, and the idea of “alien” at the Mexico-US border.

Aline Lemus Bernal & Martin Balmaceda & Cinthia Pérez Navarro
