An evening of border art and literature featuring Guillermo Gómez-Peña with cameos by Balitronica, from the series “WE ARE ALL ALIENS.”

In his new spoken-word monologue created for El Paso’s Dia de los Muertos celebration, seminal Chicano performance artist Guillermo Gómez-Peña draws from his thirty-five year archive to present a unique perspective on the immediate future of the Americas.
