Vultures At The Well

July 26, 27 and 28 at the UTEP Studio Theatre (first floor of the Fox Fine Arts building).

Vultures at the Well is a modern myth that combines elements of scripted drama, devised theatre, dance, and improvisation in recounting the tale of a mother who challenges the gods in order to get her son back. The show is The Border Theatre’s first full-length original narrative which, in the ensemble’s tradition, combined the talents of several writers, directors, choreographers, and performers to create it.

Performances will run Friday July 26 through Sunday July 28 at 8 PM each night. There will also be matinee performances on Saturday July 27 and Sunday July 28 at 2:30 PM.

Tickets are $10 and are available at the door, online at, or on your mobile device through the Eventbrite app . The Saturday matinee is FREE to the public.
