Teatro Línea de Sombra: Amarillo

“A tragic fresco, with a dynamic rhythm, a certain ironic sadness, and a foundation of dark humor.” —Tiempo Libre

“Meticulous digital design deepens the artistic exploration of the exodus and its repercussion on the human condition.” —Miami Herald

RADAR L.A. FESTIVAL

 

Projected imagery, bold staging and layered voices construct the unknown journey of a man gone missing in this powerful theatrial work directed by Jorge A. Vargas and created in collaboration with the members of Teatro Linea de Sombra. The absent central figure of the work departed for the U.S.–Mexican border, his destination Amarillo, Texas, and his whereabouts unknown. As the performers travel imagined landscapes of geography and cultural identity, they manipulate objects and shape the stage with traces of their actions. As it questions the relationship between personal and collective experience, Amarillio delves into the meaning of national identity in a time of migration, while blurring the lines between fiction and reality. The figures in Amarillo have multiple faces, representing thousands of identities that make up the image of a town experiencing a continuous exodus.
