The voice is here to perform and discuss PELOTA/pehLO tah/, his new work that layers poetic text, movement, images, and music into a fresh theatrical form based on hip-hop aesthetics. His works include Word Becomes Flesh, De/Cipher and No Man's Land. He is currently the Chief of Program and Pedagogy at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, CA.
This program is presented in partnership with and as part of a residency at the Richard and Mary L. Gray Center for Arts and Inquiry at the University of Chicago.
