Dangerous Border Game (1996)

Dangerous Border Game (1996) HIDVL

This theatrical performance art piece is the product of a five-year ongoing collaboration between Guillermo Gómez-Peña, Roberto Sifuentes, and a troupe of Washington, D.C. performance artists. Presented by the Washington Performing Arts Society and GALA Hispanic Theater, this "culti-multural, end-of-the-century, post-NAFTA, freak show extravaganza" blends narrative, poetry, dance, rap, and performance art in a multi-lingual exploration of cross-cultural, border-crossing issues and debates on multicultural fears and desires, stereotypes, diversity and identity.
