Outriders: Ximena Escalante & Stef Smith (2017 Event)

As part of our project to explore the Americas, leading Mexican playwright Ximena Escalante travelled across Mexico with Scottish theatre writer Stef Smith. Starting in the US city of San Diego, they journeyed south across the Mexican border, making their way to Mexico City, Oaxaca and Merida before arriving at the country’s southern border with Guatemala. In this event recorded live at the 2017 Edinburgh International Book Festival they share some of their unforgettable experiences, and some of the writing inspired by the journey.

Please note: this recording features strong language and adult content.
