La Pocha Nostra Performance and Artist Residency

SPECIAL PERFORMANCE:
Corpo Illicito: The Post-Human Society #69
Friday, October 30, 2009. 7:00pm. FREE.
Columbia College Chicago, 618 S. Michigan, 2nd Floor

Join us for a debut performance by members of La Pocha Nostra, the acclaimed Mexican-American “trans-disciplinary organization” and 2009-2010 Critical Encounters Artists-in-Residence. “Corpo Illicito” is the third in the group’s Mapa-Corpo series and will feature Guillermo Gomez-Pena, Violeta Luna and Roberto Sifuentes. The new piece tackles this historic moment of reinvention by looking into the past and attempting to prognosticate a possible future without resorting to quick fixes and false hopes. Using performance bodies as sites for political reinvention and poetic prophesying, La Pocha Nostra explores both the legacy of fear of the Other, the criminalization of the brown body inherited by the Bush administration, and the emerging culture of hope, imagination and faith that has developed in response to the former world order.
