Ghosts of the River incorporates actors, shadow puppets and music along with Octavio Solís‚ epic writing into a unique collection of vignettes of those who have encountered the Rio Grande throughout time: Mexican Revolution refugees fleeing from violence; families abandoned by coyotes; narcotic rivalries that strew the river with the dead; and Border Patrol agents who toil against the tide of immigration and personal conscience. Produced by San Francisco's ShadowLight Productions, Ghosts of the River shares the untold stories of both sides of the divide. This will be a bilingual play with Spanish/English translation provided through subtitles.

Una producción de ShadowLight Productions, Fantasmas Del Río comparte los relatos por contar de ambos lados de la frontera. Está obra se presentará en forma bilingüe con traducción por medio de subtítulos.

UC Berkeley Master of Fine Arts Exhibit 2009!!!

The M.F.A. program in art practice at UC Berkeley provides a unique context for students to employ unconventional yet rigorous research methods. Drawing on their studies in diverse fields—literature, folk culture, engineering, history, web design—the six artists graduating in 2009 have created works that challenge our desire to identify with predetermined visual models and redefine the Bay Area legacies of Abstract Expressionism, conceptual art, and social practice.
