La Pocha core troupe includes:
Guillermo Gómez-Peña (San Francisco/Mexico City)

SOMArts Cultural Center
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.
