Shooting Columbus is a new Borderlands Theater production, but it’s more of an experience than it is a play. Visually stunning and at times overwhelming, this beautiful new work asks a simple question, “If settlers never arrived in this land, how would your life be different?” The creators of the play, the Fifth World Collective, are a group of indigenous and non-indigenous artist. Together they explore this question through installations, movement, dance, video projection, audio recordings and performance. At the center of the production are often overlooked struggles of Native Americans, expressed in their own voices. Shooting Columbus advances the mission and the vision of Borderlands Theater in impressive fashion.
