USA today: Borders: Crossing the Line
Many of today’s high school and college students have grown up amid partisan bickering about what makes someone a real American, even as the population of the United States gets more diverse and less white. Local theater professionals Dale Dunn and Lynn Goodwin head up Just Say It Theater, a project that facilitates creative collaborations among students at Santa Fe University of Art and Design, New Mexico School for the Arts, and, for the first time this spring, the Santa Fe Indian School. Working from initial conversations the students held about what borders are and what they mean in different people’s lives, the theater group wrote Borders: Crossing the Line, a play that grapples with race, religion, and national identity. Performances are at Warehouse 21 (1614 Paseo de Peralta) at 7 p.m. on Friday, May 1, and Saturday, May 2, and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, May 3. Tickets, which are $10 ($5 for students), can be reserved by calling 505-820-7112. — J.L.
