1995-97

Roberto and I tour Borderama, a proscenium piece that subverts and parodies pop cultural formats such as the talk show, the self-realization seminar, a hypnotist lounge act, a French anthropologist's lecture, and an ethnic fashion show. In the press release, we invite the audience "to come to the show in costume, dressed as your favorite cultural other, and express those interracial fantasies we all have inside of us." We invite "special guests" from the local communities to participate in the show, including street performers, drag queens, Mexican wrestlers, and cantina eccentrics. At the end of the piece, Roberto and I auction ourselves as "sexy, AIDS-free Third World performance artists."
