Most of the discussions about immigration to the U.S., illegal or otherwise, have been centered on the people who are here. In Amarillo, a multimedia performance work by Mexican theater company Teatro Línea de Sombra, the emphasis is on the people who are left behind, and the people who leave but never get to their destination. Amarillo creates a borderland environment dominated by a wall that acts as a shelter, an obstacle, and a grave marker. Performers embrace it, deface it, and throw themselves against it. SANDRA KURTZ
