Presented as part of Pacific Standard Time Festival: Live Art LA/LA

A cavernous underground urban space will be transformed for this industrial-strength installation/performance using construction vehicles, tons of soil, and giant projections. Mexican performance collective Teatro Línea de Sombra’s Durango 66 (or Duran66o) draws connections between the student protest movement in Mexico in the 1960s and the recent massacres in Mexico attributed to crime syndicates and government collusion, including the mass murders discovered in Durango in 2011 and other recent atrocities. The piece resumes the action taken by a group of students in Durango almost fifty years ago, seeking to reflect on how the social risks involved in privatization and corporate overexploitation of natural resources were not perceptible at the time.

Performed in Spanish and English, with English surtitles.

January 16-18, 8:30 pm

Un espacio urbano subterráneo será transformado por medio de este performance en una instalación industrial utilizando grúas, toneladas de tierra y proyecciones gigantes. Durango 66 (o Duran66o) del colectivo de performance mexicano Teatro Línea de Sombra traza conexiones entre el movimiento estudiantil de protesta en México en la década de 1960 y las recientes masacres en el país, cometidas por el crimen organizado en connivencia con el gobierno, incluyendo el descubrimiento de fosas comunes en Durango en 2011 y otras atrocidades. La pieza resume la acción tomada por un grupo de estudiantes en Durango hace casi cincuenta años e intenta pensar cómo los riesgos sociales involucrados en la privatización y la sobreexplotación corporativa de los recursos naturales no fueron percibidos en aquél entonces.

Presentación en español con supertítulos en inglés.
