Who we are

We are Laboratorio Sin Fronteras – Arts for Human Development. Our purpose seeks the healing and expansion of the human being through meditation, projected to artistic creation. We were born in 2013 within Laboratorio Escuela, an experimental theater school founded by Jessica Walker in 1999 in Barcelona, Spain.

The mountain

Considered as the physical manifestation of Lord Shiva, Arunachala has been a place of pilgrimage and devotion for thousands of years. A point of high vibration that concentrates an intense spiritual activity during the year, with pilgrimages en masse each full moon. The energy of Arunachala is a direct inspiration for the creation of the event.
