    Dreaming Sin Fronteras (Dreaming without Borders) tells the stories of undocumented youth through music, visual art and testimony. The multimedia event features “DREAMers” from across L.A.; musicians Shawn King (DeVotchKa), Raul Pacheco (Ozomatli), Ceci Bastida (Tijuana NO!) and Stephen Brackett (The Flobots); and art by Favianna Rodriguez.

    Dreaming Sin Fronteras (Dreaming without Borders) will bring to Bovard Auditorium the honest and often heartbreaking stories of undocumented youth through live music, visual art and testimony. Adapted and directed by Antonio Mercado, this unique production will feature student actors from USC and Jose Julian (A Better Life) along with “DREAMers”—undocumented students who would benefit from a federal Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act—from across Los Angeles. With live music by Shawn King (DeVotchKa), Raul Pacheco (Ozomatli), Ceci Bastida (Tijuana NO!) and Stephen Brackett (The Flobots) along with visual designs by activist-artist Favianna Rodriguez, this multimedia event will powerfully communicate the narratives of young people whose lives are deeply and devastatingly defined by international borders and immigration laws. Audience members will have the chance to take commemorative photos in front of Rodriguez’s most circulated art piece, Migration Is Beautiful.
