A journey without end: New works from Mexico, collects the work of ten young Mexican playwrights that reflect the experience of a dilemma to live in the midst of a world globalization and half-modernization in their own country. The themes are created from an imaginative new wealth, which is influenced on one hand by the hybrid Mexican popular culture, and on the other hand, by the influence of global media. It is important for this urban postmodern dramaturge that a reflection about everyday life in a megalopolis such as Mexico City is done. But the theatrical aspects near the northern border is reflected in this cultural clash: the tension caused between the need for assimilation into the dominant American culture and the conservation of an indigenous system.

This one is the eighth edition on theater in Latin America at the Theater und Mediengesellschaft Lateinamerika, e.V., which since 1988 is devoted to the cultural exchange between Germany and Latin America.
