About the Performance

51Barrio invites the audience to experience the essence of unión (unity) through the eyes of  Barrio Logan’s Chicano Park. This performance highlights the strength of Mexican American cultura (culture), its history, and visibilizes la lucha (fight back) to keep land in their hands.  51Barrio honors Victor Ochoa -OG muralist- one of many prominent community visionaries  manifesting the vibrance, both physical and emotional, of Chicano Park. Ever-changing, the  park is home to many, now including 51Barrio, who continue to nurture its roots and history.
