Experience Live Magazine Show, the concluding celebration of the Lit & Luz Festival of Language, Literature, and Art. Each year, the Lit & Luz program supports the creation of new collaborative artworks between writers, visual artists, and musicians from Chicago and Mexico. In the months leading up to the festival, teams of participating artists from the two cities work remotely to co-create a performance incorporating their respective mediums. The pieces are presented during the show in both Spanish and English and they often explore the relationship between the languages, art forms, and cultures of the United States and Mexico.

Vive el Live Magazine Show, la celebración final del Festival Lit & Luz de Lenguaje, Literatura, y Arte. Cada año, el programa Lit & Luz apoya la creación de nuevas obras de arte de colaboración entre escritores, artistas visuales, y músicos de Chicago y la Ciudad de México. En los meses previos al festival, equipos de artistas participantes de las dos ciudades trabajan a distancia para co-crear un performance incorporando sus respectivos medios. Las piezas se presentan durante el Show tanto en español como en inglés y a menudo exploran la relación entre los idiomas, las formas de arte, y las culturas de Estados Unidos y México.
