For 30 years, Culture Clash has scoured all points of the Nation searching for the American Character through the oral histories of its citizens. From the borders and in the margins, safe houses, streets and the jails of America comes a night of carefully curated voices and true stories of unforgettable people. Funny, heart wrenching and with an unflinching sense of justice, Culture Clash gives voice to the voiceless. Now Ric Salinas, Herbert Siguenza and Richard Montoya return to Boston to tell real stories about real Americans living at the margins who "Can't Breathe....".

"Three fiery, passionate, funny and incredibly committed master storytellers." - Orange County Weekly

Culture Clash push buttons in Boston!


Out of the activism of San Francisco's Mission District, Culture Clash sharpened their focus, and their bite, on a decades-long road trip through Latino cultures in cities around the US, creating a series of comic documentary performances based in communities as far flung as Miami, San Diego, Washington D.C., NY, Los Angeles and Boston. They've also created new works for Oregon Shakespeare Festival, La Jolla Playhouse, Yale Repertory Theater, and Center Theater Group in Los Angeles. Their videos, short films and art exhibits have been shown at The Smithsonian; The Whitney Museum of American Art; Sundance Film Festival; The San Juan, Puerto Rico Film and Video Festival; The Art Institute of Boston; Palm Springs Film Festival and The Los Angeles Film Festival, among others.
