Theater Group Challenges Audiences To Think (and Laugh) About Race
The San Francisco-based group Culture Clash started some 30 years ago at a Cinco de Mayo event with six members, eventually winnowing down to three: Richard Montoya, Ric Salinas, and Herbert Siguenza. Though they had a brief foray into television in the 1990s, Culture Clash finds its primary home in the theater.Click here to listen
REVIEW: The Boston Globe
"[The] underlying message of this big-hearted sketch show by Culture Clash: Our differences notwithstanding, we're all in this together. We're all trying to master some tricky steps."
"reclaims the idea of multiculturalism from the realm of academic jargon, showing us what a truly United States might look like."
REVIEW: The Arts Fuse
"Muse and Morros is a high acceleration non-stop one-act show where you hear from an uncanny congregation of marginalized voices."
"ArtsEmerson is to be congratulated for inviting this ballsy troupe to Boston."
"an immigrants' journey across time and geography"
"Every sketch Culture Clash delivers comes armed with that double-edged blade"
"this is volatile stuff"
