“A powerful, distinctive voice.” —Chicago Reader (Critic’s Choice)

Description

In Self (the Remix), critically-acclaimed performance artist Robert Farid Karimi offers a fresh view on American identity, remixing personal & political history as he travels from Mexican restaurants to mixed culture moshpits in this electrifying exploration of manhood, nationhood and neighborhood. The child of Iranian and Guatemalan immigrants, Karimi flows through 23 different characters, some real and others imaginary, accompanied by a soundscape spun live onstage by DJ D Double, which ranges from hip-hop to punk to disco and everything in-between.
