Overview

Guillermo Gómez-Peña has spent many years developing his unique style of performance-activism; his theatricalizations of postcolonial theory. In Ethno-Techno: Writings on Performance, Activism and Pedagogy, he pushes the boundaries still further, exploring what's left for artists to do in a post-9/11 repressive culture of what he calls 'the mainstream bizarre'.

Over forty-five photos document his artistic experiments and the text not only explores and confronts his political and philosophical parameters; it offers groundbreaking insights into his, and his company's, methods of production, development and teaching.

The result is an extraordinary and inspiring glimpse into the life and work of one of the most daring, innovative and challenging performance artists of our age.

'A fascinating and important collection of texts.'Jon McKenzie, author of Perform or Else

'Gómez-Peña's work and insight continue to be so very important ... a much needed book in these days and times.'Rebecca Schneider, Brown University

'A publication of international significance and one that will appeal to students, artists and activists engaged with art and politics in a social context across the world' – Lois Keidan, Live Art Development Agency

'This collection offers an unprotected fluid exchange of ideas and cross-contamination of methodologies ... a great book ... It might even change your life.' – Contemporary Theatre Review
