VERBO•BALA SPOKEN VIDEO
Verbo•bala explores border identity through nuanced storytelling and digital media, creating performance pieces composed of bilingual poetry, live video projection and sound design. Formed in Cuernavaca, Mexico in 2007, the group is currently based in Tucson, Arizona and considers the borderlands its home.
Described as "going for a poetry written without letters" by Mexico's national newspaper La Reforma, Verbo•bala's innovative practice has taken their work from Cuernavacan speakeasies to international venues including the National Hispanic Cultural Center, the Phoenix Art Museum, New York University, and the Poesía.en.Voz.Alta Festival in Mexico City.
Verbo•bala ("bullet verb") is lead by bilingual poet Logan Phillips, joined by DJ Emmett White and video artists Moisés Regla and Adam Cooper-Terán. The group is also known for their DJ/VJ work under the name Sonidero Verbo•bala, moving dance floors with rhythms from across the hemisphere.
