In just a few weeks the Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts (PIFA) begins with over 100 events, collaborations and more. PIFA is about collaboration. Throughout the 25+ days you're bound to see new events, never before seen collaborations and maybe an Eiffel Tower and a giant ferris wheel. So where do people find inspiration for a first time festival? How do you get these collaborations to work? That's what the JOURNEY is there for. To show you how it all comes together.
The Journey follows the stories of several PIFA artists on their daily search for inspiration and creative expression. Each episode is a personal, sometimes surprising, behind the scenes look at the lives lived in pursuit of art and performance. So what's so special about Puentes/Bridges? Well if you combine Taller Puertorriqueno, AMLA and Intercultural Journeys, you're bound to get an explosive performance that combines different talents and a performance of a lifetime.

Puentes/Bridges will take place on Friday, April 29 at Taller Puertorriqueno in North Philadelphia. The festivities begin at 6 p.m.
