Marisela Barrera

Marisela Barrera creates Tex-Mex stories on stage and in print. She is a genre fluid writer, with over twenty-five published essays, and she has directed over fifty plays in various venues: from street corners and cantinas to San Antonio’s Tobin Center. For Luminaria, she performed GenteTalk: Testimonios from San Antonio, a live theatre performance which she prepared for by capturing stories from gente (people) from each general sector of San Antonio: Southside, Eastside, Westside and Northside. She used these unheard stories as source material for her performance, which took place at the Mexican Cultural Institute at Luminaria 2017.
