Since 1993, Guillermo Gómez-Peña and members of the La Pocha Nostra performance troupe have conducted cross-cultural/cross-disciplinary/cross-generational workshops involving performance artists, actors, dancers, and students from diverse ethnic communities, generations and artistic backgrounds.
This 4-hour workshop will provide participants with an introduction to the interdisciplinary pedagogy created by performance troupe La Pocha Nostra. The session will focus on performance art and the human body as a site for creation, reinvention, memory and activism. Participants will be exposed to La Pocha Nostra's most recent performance methodologies, an eclectic combination of exercises borrowed from multiple traditions including performance art, experimental theater and dance, the Suzuki method, performative rituals and performance games.
