About this Event

World premiere of: Anywhere But Here 

A family. A border wall. A million memories and the quest for home.

By Carmen Aguirre

Raps written with Shad Kabango

February 4 – 15, 2020

Vancouver Playhouse

600 Hamilton Street, Vancouver

Tickets from $19.99 - REFUND & TICKETING POLICIES

It’s 2020 at the US/Mexico border in Trump’s America.

In 1979, a family drives back towards Chile from Canada. With past, present, and future encircling their journey, this profoundly poetic story is about the universal quest for home - in whatever form that takes.

A spellbinding blend of dark comedy and magical realism, Anywhere But Here is a vibrant celebration of Latinx theatre, with music and raps by Shad, that chronicles the many paths, real and imagined, we take to discover the truth —  the truth about who we are, and where we may be headed.

Telling an engrossing story that intersects multiple timelines and spaces, Anywhere But Here introduces us to a host of fantastical characters who have experienced the pull of home, the ache of displacement, and the harsh realities of the border as they attempt to cross, guard, or survive it.
