Performance: Los Doppelgangers

Performance artist Guillermo Gómez-Peña (La Pocha Nostra) and actor/director Richard Montoya (Culture Clash), both “mean” writers and long-time friends, collaborate for this “mano a mano” performance project dealing with current border issues. Montoya and Gómez-Peña will select, rework, and perform excerpts from their past monologues, movement, spoken word, and radical storytelling in alternating dialog. The result will be both a “profane” border ritual and a “living archive” that explores the rampant violence taking place in Mexico and the concurrent anti-immigration hysteria in the United States.

Also includes live music from Boyle Heights’ own Chicano Son and special guests!

Don’t miss Los Doppelgangers: putting the GANG back in Doppelganger! This is a standing room only (SRO) performance in the Fowler courtyard, with a cash bar. Due to the intimate nature of the venue, attendance for this performance is capped at 90.

Reserve today: $25
