is an arts collective and community that centers art and artists that represent Nepantla: the in-between, the neither-here-nor-there, the mixed, the two-sided, the two-spirited, and the otherwise intersectional. Dually based in New York City and El Rio Grande Valle in Texas, THE BORDERLANDS seeks to draw connections between the ancient and the contemporary, the spiritual and the physical, the indigenous and the alien by creating ’third culture’ with artists and community members. With roots in theatrical storytelling, THE BORDERLANDS’ work manifests as multi-media experiences that defy category. Current projects include GET TO THE POINTE - a ballroom fantasia about the invention of the pointe shoe, KING DAVID IN THE APOCALYPSE - an exploration of love, art, and religion, SELENA: THE EXPERIENCE - a celebration of Tejane music and culture, and the first-ever Spanish translation of Rogers and Hammerstein’s OKLAHOMA! told through the lens of Mexican vaquero culture and folklórico. THE BORDERLANDS was founded by Diego Alejandro González and William Carlos Angulo
