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 LĂ­nea 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
