Border Brujo

Guillermo Gomez-Pena

Americans of native stock (are there any?) are afraid. The U.S.-Mexican border is like a sieve.


Chicanos are invading the country! Goodbye apple pies, hello tacos! A Chicano from San Diego, an American from Mexico, Guillermo Gomez-Pena deals in border poetry and smuggled humour. A multi-disciplinary performer, he delivers monologues and strips away clichés. His text pours out at top speed like a stream in full torrent, engulfing the American Dream as it sweeps past.


Written, directed and performed by Guillermo Gomez-Pena
