Based on Rumors and Secrets: The World of Palestine, New Mexico
The new play by L.A.'s premiere Chicano performance group, Culture Clash, molds an intensely personal story into galvanizing theatricality. Join us for a discussion of the Culture Clash creative process that mixes humor and cold fact to unforgettable effect.
Founded on Cinco de Mayo, 1984, in San Francisco's historic Mission District, Culture Clash is Richard Montoya, Ric Salinas and Herbert Siguenza. Now based in Los Angeles, the trio uses "performance collage" to bring history, geography, "urban excavation," "forensic poetry" and storytelling together in a contemporary, movable theater narrative through a Chicano point of view - what Guillermo Gomez-Pena describes as "reverse anthropology."
