Description

Through the performance ritual, the audience vicariously experiences the freedom, cultural risks, and utopian possibilities that society has denied them. Audience members are encouraged to touch us, smell us, feed us, defy us. In this strange millenial ceremony, the pandora box opens and the post-colonial demons are unleashed. - Guillermo Gomez-Pe?as Performance Diaries Guillermo Gomez-Pena has been variously described as among the most significant of late-twentieth-century performance artists - The Village Voice ; a peacemaker in the worlds culture clash - Vanity Fair ; and a wizard of language - The Chicago Tribune . He is without doubt, a unique outsider-artist who crosses the border and talks back. In Dangerous Bordercrossers , Gomez-Pena continues his epic, artistic journey through globalisation, the commodification of identity, and the continuing culture wars. His writings, like his performances, point towards a borderless future and a poetics of hybridity. This latest anthology of his performance chronicles, diary entries, poems, essays, and texts, sheds an extraordinary light on the life and work of this migrant provocateur. He documents and illuminates his brilliantly inventive collaborations with Roberto Sifuentes and Sara Shelton-Mann, among others, and reveals, for the first time, what it's like to be a Chicano on the road. Dangerous Bordercrossers is at once sexy, scary and inspiring. Be prepared to be provoked.
