The Collision of the Historical and the Hysterical
In the American tradition of the road trip, Culture Clash's productions prove migration and storytelling pre-date Kerouac and Easy Rider. Culled from 20 years of the collected works of Culture Clash's unique style of ethnographic, political, and historical/hysterical theatre, CULTURE CLASH IN AMERICCA is a fresh examination of cultures in flux. From the impossible landscape of Cuban exiles and Haitian immigrants in Miami, to the early Puerto Rican political activists in Manhattan, to the community of the commies and dot-commers rubbing elbows in San Francisco's Mission District, Culture Clash's riotous brand of comedy and social activism leaves audiences gasping for air.
Recent successful regional theater productions include Chavez Ravine, Zorro in Hell, Water & Power, and Richard Montoya’s critically-acclaimed American Night, which inaugurated Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s “American Revolutions” US history cycle commissioning project in 2010 and has been produced at Denver Center Theatre, La Jolla Playhouse, Kirk Douglas Theatre and Yale Repertory (fall 2012). Culture Clash is currently developing a touring package for their 30th anniversary season in 2013-14 as a tribute to the legacy of their long-standing landmark collaboration.
