Teatro Jornalero Sin Fronteras


Mexican teatro

Teatro Jornalero Sin Fronteras is a Los Angeles-based ensemble theater group made up of day laborers. Since 2008, the ten-member troupe has developed fifteen short plays examining social justice issues such as worker and immigrant rights, building healthy families and workplaces, and exploring the creation of transnational cultures. Tetaro Jornalero Sin Fronteras performs its plays at sites where day laborers gather, mainly the 14 day labor centers supported by the City of Los Angeles, as well as at social and human service agencies and public events.  Teatro Jornalero Sin Fronteras is housed at the Cornerstone Theater Company.

As a grantee of ACTA's Living Cultures Grants Program in 2016, Teatro Jornalero Sin Fronteras  will receive funding to support story circles and the creation of a theater piece based upon Mexican and Central American folk tales.  The plays will be performed in Long Beach.
