(A Pocha Nostra Performance Extravaganza)  

A one night only performance extravaganza
SOMArts, San Francisco

"The most original performance troupe with a Latin American aesthetic and a post-colonial ethos." -El Pais, Spain

For one week in January La Pocha Nostra’s core troupe will convene in San Francisco with their main collaborators from out of town to workshop a new performance extravaganza. The format will be a multi-diorama high tech performance/installation of epic scale similar to the legendary Mexterminator piece that took place in SomArts in 1998.

Versions of Corpo Ilicito have been presented recently at the Habana Biennale, The Trouble Festival (Brussels), The Danube Festival (Austria), Queer Zagreb, Arte es Accion (Madrid) and Columbia College (Chicago).

La Pocha core troupe includes:
Guillermo Gómez-Peña (San Francisco/Mexico City)
Roberto Sifuentes (Chicago)
Michele Ceballos (Phoenix/Bogota)
Guillermo Galindo (San Francisco/Mexico city)
The Performance associates:
John Zibell (Davis/NYC)
Saul Garcia Lopez (Toronto/Mexico City)
Dani d’Emilia (Brazil)
EJ Hill (Chicago)
Natalie Brewster Nguyen (Tucson)
Erica Mott (Chicago)

Insurrection, Connection & Community Through the Arts

SOMArts cultivates access to the arts within the Bay Area by collaborating with community-focused artists and organizations. Together, we engage the power of the arts to provoke just and fair inclusion, cultural respect, and civic participation.

Founded in 1979, SOMArts embraces the entire spectrum of arts practice and cultural identity, and it is beloved in San Francisco as a truly multicultural, community-built space where cutting-edge events and counterculture commingle with traditional art forms.

When a SOMArts produced event is ticketed, you can buy it here on EventBrite. SOMArts frequently hosts independent productions that manage advance tickets separately, so you may be directed elsewhere from an event page.
