Community Screenings Project: Teatro Linea de Sombra | Amarillo

Between April and June 2013, OntheBoards.tv and Boom Arts (Portland) will expand the Pacific Northwest audience for Amarillo (film coming soon to OntheBoards.tv) by screening the filmed piece in five regional communities. Each screening will be hosted by and co-curated with a local arts partner and will include a bilingual discussion and Q&A featuring local scholars and community leaders. The piece expands our collective conversation about immigration and border issues with a poetic Mexican perspective.

Amarillo

A man departs for the US–Mexican border and vanishes before reaching his destination: Amarillo, Texas. Through stunning projected images, bilingual monologues and a sea of displaced objects and natural elements, this renowned company reconstructs his journey in a multimedia performance that travels imagined landscapes of both geography and cultural identity.

Loss Machine

As the visual and performance worlds continue to collide, Kyle Loven is a difficult artist to categorize. An object maker with theatrical designs, his Rube Goldberg-esque Loss Machine unearths a world of lost items, misplaced thoughts and fractured journeys all housed within an intricately detailed set. Digging through the layers of the everyday and the fantastical, this piece poignantly displays a narrative of discovery and loss from the drama of imagery.

El Rumor del Incendio

In 1960s Mexico, young revolutionaries took up arms in a desperate attempt to change society. A few decades later, the children of those guerilleros retrace the struggles of their elders, revealing this shadowed chapter of Mexican history through the personal experiences of one woman, Margarita Urías. El Rumor del Incendio blends witness accounts, archive film, and scale models as the actors unearth the artifacts of recent history.
