Rituales y Juegos Performáticos para Descolonizar el Cuerpo

La Pocha Nostra / Guillermo Gómez Peña & Roberto Sifuentes

Our eclectic methodology includes experimental theater, Suzuki training, dance, contact improvisation and ritual performance, shamanic practices, performance art, and everywhere in between.


In 1993, Guillermo Gómez-Peña, Roberto Sifuentes, and Nola Mariano founded La Pocha Nostra in Los Angeles, California. In 1995, La Pocha Nostra moved to San Francisco's Mission District, where it has been based for the last twelve years. Projects range from performance solos and duets to large-scale performance installations using video, photography, audio, and cyber-art.

Guillermo Gómez-Peña is a performance artist/writer and artistic director of La Pocha Nostra. His pioneering work explores cross-cultural issues, immigration, the politics of language, "extreme culture" and new technologies.

Roberto Sifuentes is an interdisciplinary performance artist from Los Angeles, California and a founding member of La Pocha Nostra.
