Abstract:

"From its founding in San Francisco's Mission District on Cinco de Mayo in 1984, this three-person troupe of writers/performers - Richard Montoya, Ricardo Salinas and Herbert Siguenza - has surveyed contemporary Latino/Chicano culture in America from its own outrageous and unique perspective. Inspired by the clashing cultures of society in transition, Culture Clash physicalizes comedy and satire, blending the best traditions of Charlie Chaplin, Lenny Bruce, the Marx Brothers and Cantinflas, while transforming vaudeville into a political weapon." "Inside you'll find The Mission, in which three out-of-work performers living in San Francisco's Mission District kidnap Julio Iglesias in a desperate attempt to gain national recognition; A Bowl of Beings, which features the tale of the world's first Chicano - Christopher Columbus's illegitimate son - and "The Return of Che," the story of a Berkeley radical who brings back Che Guevara for a hilarious political update; and Radio Mambo, wherein Culture Clash invades Miami, uncovering a stewing pot of ethnicity."--BOOK JACKET.
