USA to­day: Bor­ders: Cross­ing the Line

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

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.
