MATCH CUTS PRESENTS: A COUPLE COCO FUSCOS
TUESDAY, MARCH 20th

ONE NIGHT ONLY  7:30 PM

Join Match Cuts and Spectacle Theater for two works by Coco Fusco.

POCHONOVELA: A CHICANO SOAP OPERA
dir. Coco Fusco, 1996.
USA, 27 min.
English.

POCHONOVELA is a bilingual, bicultural blend of Latin Americas and the United States most popular television genresthe telenovela and the sitcom, respectively. The humor and madness of life in East Los Angeles are captured here in performances by members of the Los Angeles-based comedy troupe, Chicano Secret Service, and other U.S. Latino actors. This provocative comedy touches on political, social, cultural, linguistic, and family issues attendent to the cross cultural life of Mexican Americans living near or on the borderboth psychologically and geographically. Music composed by the band Cholita.

THE COUPLE IN THE CAGE: GUATIANAUI ODYSSEY
dir. Coco Fusco, Paula Heredia, 1993.
USA, 31 min.
English.

In a series of 1992 performances, Coco Fusco and performance co-creator Guillermo Gómez-Peña decked themselves out in primitive costumes and appeared before the public as undiscovered AmerIndians locked in a golden cagean exercise in faux anthropology based on racist images of natives. Presented eight times in four different countries, these simple performances evoked various responses, the most startling being the huge numbers of people who didnt find the idea of natives locked in a cage objectionable. This provocative video, directed and produced by Coco Fusco and Paula Heredia, suggests that the primitive is nothing more than a construction of the West and uses comic fiction to address historical truths and tragedies.
