The Pandemia Chronicles: A Divination Ritual by Guillermo Gómez-Peña & Balitrónica

March 11

6:30-8:00 pm MST

The Pandemia Chronicles: A Divination Ritual

A brand new spoken-word monologue & “live-action juke-box” by Guillermo Gómez-Peña & Balitrónica 

by Guillermo Gómez-Peña & Balitrónica 

La Pocha Nostra and the artists are thrilled to present excerpts from their most recent performance manuscripts and bank of ritual actions. Utilizing a casino roulette and traditional tarot deck, Balitrónica utilizes various forms of oracular magic to select spoken word texts and props for Gómez-Peña live performance. The fate of the script and the performance are determined by methods of divination and chance. 

In this new project, the artists are unplugged, thinking out loud and articulating the challenges and possibilities of reinvention in the midst of multiple pandemics. The performance includes new texts written during the past two years combined with “classics” from Gómez-Peña’s own living archives.

Arrive early for a surprise pre-performance appearance and photo opportunity with The Phantom Mariachi!
