Tucson-based artists Adam Cooper-Terán and Logan Phillips re-encounter their longtime collaborator Moisés Regla Demaree (Mexico City) in a live art event blending video and poetry, retrospective and ritual, Mexico and Arizona, past and present. Collaborating under the name Verbo•bala Spoken Video for the past decade, the group creates art that is increasingly relevant in an age of militarized borders, demagoguery, technology, and popular resilience.

It was 2007 when Arizona-born poet Logan Phillips met video artist Moisés Regla Demaree in his native Cuernavaca, Mexico. Joined shortly after by visualist Adam Cooper-Terán of Tucson, the trio began experimenting with what they called «spoken video.» Their genre-bending mix of VJing, bilingual poetry and performance art was uniquely suited to exploring the borders that ran through the group and through their own experiences.

Over the last ten years the group has headlined festivals in Mexico City, DJ'ed mezcal speakeasies, been invited to universities from Oregon to Germany and been denied papers & detained by Border Patrol. Serial collaborators, they have worked with a wide range of artists in Mexico, the United States, Germany and Colombia. Their full-length performances include Sonoran Strange (2014-present), Border Remixeado (2007-2010), Dios de la Adrenalina (2012-2013) and Nobody Speaks (2008).
