NET/TEN Shareback: Borderlands Theater & Baktun 12 - The Dos and Donts of Community Engagement

2015-16 Exchange Grant Recipient

Borderlands Theater (Tucson, AZ) collaborated with Baktun 12 (Salinas, CA) to develop and workshop a new performance piece titled, Nogales, by playwright Richard Montoya with Campo Santo (San Francisco, CA). Collaborators shared knowledge around site-specific performance, community collaboration, interview-based docu-theatre, and cross-sector partnerships with local educational, civic, and community organizations.

SHAREBACK:

Marc David Pinate (Producing Artistic Director at Borderlands Theater) and Luis Xago Juarez (Artistic Director at Baktun12) came together to discuss working with different community partners. As theaters increasingly begin to explore Docutheater, Marc and Xago discussed how to create genuine relationships with community partners and the Dos and Donts of Community Engagement.
