POCHA NOSTRA presents 'Corpo Insurrecto: Psycho-Magic Actions For A World Gone Wrong'.
Employing La Pocha Nostra's trademark "robo-baroque" aesthetic, cyborg-kitsch and acid humor, Corpo Insurrecto: Psycho-Magic Actions for A World Gone Wrong is LPN's newest experiment in 'corporeal transformations'. Using this format, the ritual presentation of live art and live language, Corpo Insurrecto samples both new work and performance classics, addressing the current global culture of far right isolationism, xenophobia, the violence of organized crime and a broken economy and how these factors impact on the human body. As in most Pocha projects, audience members are invited to participate in this bizarre experiment. They will be invited to collaborate as we incarnate "the dreams and nightmares of our current times," and to help the performers re-imagine new iconography by intervening the performance with their own bodies in dialogue with the performers. Through this, LPN will invoke a "wonderfully clumsy but efficient form of radical democratic practice." The revelation of the process, the in situ search for new images and formats, becomes the actual project.
