TeatroStageFest's Community Access Initiative distributed subsidized tickets to members of several community-based organizations Adelante Alliance, La Union and Tepeyac, among others, who attended a presentation of Amarillo.
A man departs for the U.S.-Mexican border and vanishes. Amarillo, Texas, is the destination he never arrives at. In the distance, a woman yearns for his return as she reconstructs his body, imagines his probable itinerary and final words.
As the performers travel imagined landscapes of both geography and cultural identity, the absent man takes on multiple faces and names. He comes to symbolize the thousands of disillusioned travelers who have suffered a similar fate. Amarillo touches on the complex nature of individual and national identity in a time of exodus—both for those who leave, and those who are left behind.
Teatro Línea de Sombra was founded in 1993 by Jorge A. Vargas, one of Mexico's most prominent contemporary directors, who began doing political theatre in the 1970's. Under his direction, and through a process of collaboration with the actors, Línea de Sombra has emerged as one of the leading Mexican touring ensembles and has received international acclaim for its distinctive theatrical and visual productions that combine movement, projections, layered sound scores and other forms of mixed media.
