“Ni Aquí Ni Allá” is an upcoming multimedia arts show that aims to give voice to Atlanta’s Latinx community by showcasing more than 20 Latinx artists. (Latinx, by the way, is a gender-inclusive term referring to people of Latin American descent.)

Bella Dorado, an Atlanta-based dancer and choreographer, is the mind behind Ni Aquí Ni Allá.

She joined City Lights producer Miranda Hawkins to talk about the multimedia arts show and how it explores what it means to be caught between Latinx culture and growing up in the United States.

Ni Aquí Ni Allá is on April 19 from 7 to 10 p.m. at The Bakery, which is a venue in Oakland City.
