1. An Evening with Guillermo Gómez-Peña
March 18 (TONIGHT!)

In his latest solo work, “El border brujo” draws from his 30 year old “living archive” and combines new and classic performance material to present a unique perspective on the immediate future of the Americas. His-self styled “imaginary activism” invokes performance art as a form of radical democracy and citizenship.

Combining spoken word poetry, activist theory, radical storytelling and language experimentation, Gómez-Peña offers critical and humorous commentary about the art world, academia, new technologies, the culture of war and violence in the US, organized crime in Mexico, gender and race politics, and the latest wave of complications surrounding gentrification in the “creative city”.

Besides his international work with the legendary troupe La Pocha Nostra, he has presented his solo work at museums, universities, galleries and theatres throughout the US, Canada, Europe, Latin America, Australia and South Africa.

Gómez-Peña’s unique format reveals to an audience the process of creating, languaging and performing material and this process becomes the actual project. It is precisely in his new solo work where Gómez-Peña’s literature, theory, activism, pedagogy and live art come together in a wonderfully strange mix.

Gómez-Peña has spent many years developing his unique solo style, “a combination of embodied poetry, performance activism and theatricalizations of postcolonial theory.” In his ten books, as in his live performances, digital art, videos and photo-performances, he pushes the boundaries still further, exploring what’s left for artists to do in a repressive global culture of censorship, paranoid nationalism and what he terms “the mainstream bizarre.” Gómez-Peña examines where this leaves the critical practice of artists who aim to make tactical, performative interventions into our notions of culture, race and sexuality. Most recently he has also been exploring the poetic and activist use of new technologies and social media.

 Women's Basketball Season Wrap-Up 

The City College of San Francisco Rams Women's Basketball Team's bid for a state championship ended last Friday when the Rams lost to East Los Angeles College 51-47 in the California Community College Athletic Association's state semifinal at Las Positas College. 

Although the Rams came up just short of an appearance in the CCCAA state championship game, this year's team was one of the best CCSF women's basketball teams in recent memory. The Rams' 28-4 record was the best finish by the Rams in the last six years. 

Their 12-0 record in the Coast-North Conference helped the Rams capture their fifth conference title in the last seven years and the No.1 seed in the CCCAA state playoffs.
