These actors did a great job at portraying the lives of immigrants in the US. They looked into different cultures and races and how they fit in, or not. It was funny and... continued

Description

Written by and starring Richard Montoya, Ricardo Salinas, and Herbert Siguenza.

Change has come in America. And nobody shows us the intimate details of a more perfect union than the Culture Clash trio with their out of the box comedic AND dramatic entertainment.

For over two decades this ensemble of writer-actors have practiced the art of theatrical-social anthropology by digging deep into America’s culture to formulate their outrageous brand of “performance collage.”

As in all of their memorable comedic sketches, the characters in AmeriCCa are adapted from real interviews with people from across the U.S. who live radically diverse lives. The troupe’s signature use of satire, vaudeville, mime and spoken word dramatizes the voices of the socially invisible and the New Americans, offering a fresh examination of cultures in flux. From Cuban exiles and Haitian immigrants in Miami, to a Puerto Rican political activist in Manhattan, to commies and dot-commers rubbing elbows in San Francisco’s Mission District, to expatriates in Tijuana and Ugandan cab drivers in San Diego, these are unforgettable characters who will leave you gasping, laughing and cheering.

Since creating this work at our theatre nine years ago, the ensemble has mined the cultures of Washington D.C., San Francisco, Boston and Orange County (adding to their interviews with people from Miami, Berkeley, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York and our own San Diego and Tijuana).

Culture Clash has raised their artistry to a masterful level that makes this work of theatre simply the most provocative expression of American desires, inclusion, irony and diversity that I have ever seen on the American stage. This is one powerful journey that will make you laugh, wonder and say “yes we can” all in the same evening.
