The Epic Borders Trilogy is a Manifesto Poetico series of theatre productions taking place in Northern Ireland, Mexico and Spain. The Trilogy deals with the stories and themes of people from areas with long histories of being torn by geographical, political, and intellectual boundaries. Our trilogy aims to tell the every-day stories of people from these different locations, woven together to expose the epic proportions of our collective story.

The Epic Borders research was started by Manifesto Poetico in February 2018 at the University of San Diego in California (USD), (located 20 kilometres from the Mexico-USA border) when Manifesto Poetico Founder and Artistic Director, Carlos García Estévez, was nominated to be an Honorary Chair at the university.  

At USD, Carlos, working with graduate students and professionals, researched current news and local knowledge about the reality of their circumstances: social conflicts, different ethnic groups, immigration, economic disparity, militarization and world environmental concerns.

During his time in San Diego, Carlos collaborated with researchers from different departments at the university, including the departments of Ethnic Studies, Environmental and Oceanic Studies, and with The Change-Making School of Peace and Justice. 

Part one of the Trilogy, Belfast 1919, will be created and toured in Northern Ireland in September and October of 2019. Belfast 1919 will examine Irish issues surrounding national and social borders.

Part two, The Gate of Hope, will be produced in Guadalajara, Mexico.

Part three, Around the Corner, will take place in Spain.

The right to dream; desires of humanity.
