About the Author:

Guillermo Gomez-Pena is an internationally acclaimed performance artist. Born in Mexico City, he studied linguistics and literature at UNAM (Mexico City) and post-studio art at the California Institute of the Arts. In his twenty years on the road, he has collaborated with the inimitable Roberto Sifuentes and Sara Shelton-Mann, among others.

Review:

Another valuable addition to the literature on world drama and performance..
Choice E.C. Ramirez, St. Philip's College, February 2001

...this book is recommended for collections supporting Chicana/Chicano topics, theater and drama, and performance art. All levels..
Choice E.C. Ramirez, St. Philip's College, February 2001

Add[s] to the much-needed recent surge of publications on performance art. Recommended for academic and other libraries with specialized collections in contemporary art, theater, or Latin culture.
Library Journal

Gomez-Pena celebrates hybridity, borderless frontiers, interdisciplinary art forms, linguistic amalgrams, cultural collusions--virtually everything that partakes of betweenness, especially the image of the Chicano cyborg, half human-half machine. So it shouldn't surprise that the author's fifth book confounds definition, fusing performance theory with performance diaries, conversations, essays, scripts, commentaries for NPR, travelogues, anecdotes and photographs of living dioramas.... A cross between Oscar Wilde and Lenny Bruce, witty and gritty and brilliant, Gomez-Pena stretches language to the breaking point, coining words and code shifting at will... Anyone interested in contemporary performance theory should read this book. For the rest of us, it is a cultural roller-coaster ride with decidedly satirical seat belts..
Publishers Weekly

On the experimental front, this volume celebrates hybridity, borderless frontiers, interdisciplinary artforms, linguistic amalgams, cultural collisions-virtually everything that partakes of betweenness. The L.A.-transplanted Mexican writer and performance artist, now a commentator on NPR, uses the startling image of a Chicano cyborg to exemplify the betweenness, stretching language to the breaking point, coining words and code-shifting at will.
