GGPS: The Guillermo Gómez-Peña Global Positioning System
Bogad is guided and goaded by a “GGPS” system (in his car? in his mind?) as he explores an existential performance-activist landscape in this “auto”-ethnography. Geographical “lost-ness” is quickly subsumed by political and ethical dilemmas and directions as the artists argue, agree, and head for the borderlands.
Performed during a special night of Trasnocheo organized in memory of José Esteban Muñoz. Curated by Tavia Nyong'o, Jack Halberstam, and Macarena Gomez-Barris
L.M. Bogad teaches tactical performance at UC Davis, is cofounder of the Clown Army, and author of Electoral Guerrilla Theatre and COINTELSHOW. He has led workshops and performed recently at SFMOMA, in revolutionary Cairo, in George Orwell Square, and a squatted military base in Barcelona. He is the world’s best, worst, and only Economusican.
