Dreaming Sin Fronteras is the title of a new show that explores the lives of young, undocumented immigrants through their own voices. It includes dialogue, drama and lots of live music.

"I wanted to do something that was eclectic and different," said director Antonio Mercado. "I wanted something that was part-play and part-concert to allow the audience to groove and to even dance if they wanted to."

The multimedia event features "dreamers," from across L.A.; musicians Shawn King (DeVotchKa), Raul Pacheco (Ozomatli), Ceci Bastida (Tijuana NO!) and Stephen Brackett (The Flobots); and art by Favianna Rodriguez.

What: Dreaming Sin Fronteras (Dreaming Without Borders)

Where: Bovard Auditorium, University Park Campus, USC

When: Thursday, October 16, 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
