Fri 6/19 - Sun 6/21
Earthlings take heed: Performance artist José Torres-Tama will land at the Guadalupe for a weeklong residency. For 20 years, the Ecuadorian-born and NEA award-winning Torres-Tama has used his genre-bending one-man shows to promote social change around the country. On Friday and Saturday, Torres-Tama will perform Aliens, Immigrants, and Other Evildoers
, a sci-fi Latino noir production that “exposes the hypocrisies of a system that vilifies the same people whose labor it exploits.” Sunday brings a free immigrants right forum headed by Torres-Tama’s “Art & Social Change: The Artist as Provocateur,” a multimedia event that transforms the traditional lecture experience via live art and poetry. Aliens, Immigrants & Other Evildoers: $10-$12, 8pm Fri-Sat; “Art & Social Change: The Artist as Provocateur”: free, 2pm Sun; Guadalupe Theater, 1301 Guadalupe St., (210) 271-3151, guadalupeculturalarts.org.
