NEW BARBARIANS 3.0: A Pocha Nostra X-treme Fashion Show & Photo-performance karaoke
For two-weeks in September La Pocha Nostra will be in residency at San Francisco's legendary Fort Mason Center leading an international performance workshop that will culminate in a public performance on Saturday, September 13th at 7:00 PM.

Participating artists are Guillermo Gómez-Peña, Saul Garcia-López & Dani d'Emilia
from La Pocha Nostra;
Choreographer Esther Baker-Tarpaga, photographer RJ Muna
& a selection of artists from the US, Brazil & Australia

On Saturday, September 13th La Pocha Nostra's two-week residency at Fort Mason ends with an exciting evening public performance in two-parts. Part one will include a live "photo karaoke" session in collaboration with maestro RJ Muna in which artists and audience members will create live images on-site for the camera. Part two of the evening will include an "extreme fashion show" featuring the work of the participants that has been developed during the residency.

About the project and live event: For 15 years interdisciplinary performance troupe La Pocha Nostra has been experimenting with innovative formats to present live art. These formats have included live art "dioramas" in contemporary art museums, "intelligent raves", interventions in highly-charged architectural sites and public spaces. La Pocha has a history of appropriating popular cultural formats, then subverting them by changing the context and adding politicized content.

During the workshop leading up to the event participating artists will collaboratively work with the macabre performance trio through a series of exercises developed by La Pocha Nostra to encourage the use of the body as a site for creation, reinvention, and activism. An eclectic range of performance persona will be developed during this workshop and premiered at the live event. This fashion-show format engages the audience with a variety of fashion-inspired highly stylized performance personas stemming from problematic media representations of foreigners, immigrants, and social eccentrics and outcasts, as both enemies of the state and sexy pop cultural rebels. The meta-fiction will be presented to the audience as both a hand program and a text spoken live by Gómez-Peña.
