Join Guillermo Gómez-Peña for an immersive workshop on performance and the body as a site for imagination, reinvention, activism and radical spirituality, culminating in the creation of a performative human altar referencing the Mexican tradition of Dia de los Muertos.

This workshop and séance-like ritual are presented in collaboration with The Arts at CIIS and the Theater Performance Making MFA Program as a part of the New not New Performance Festival: Dancing with the So Called Dead, a month long festival of workshops and public conversations examines the intersections of performance making and mediumship.
