Bodacious Buggerilla at the Getty Jan. 18

GETTY PRESENTS THE BODACIOUS BUGGERILLA: A REPRISE PERFORMANCE AND CONVERSATION



Members of the Radical Street Theater Group to Reunite for a Provocative Evening of Performance and Discussion as part of the Pacific Standard Time Performance and Public Art Festival



Wednesday, January 18, 2012 at 7 p.m.






WHAT: Members of the radical street theater group Bodacious Buggerrilla, which performed around Los Angeles in the 1960s, will reunite at the Getty to reprise their surreal and sarcastic style of political critique. The group will reassemble for a reading that revives their politically charged historical performance works which used humorous narratives and theatrical costumes to satirize figures that represent racism and critiqued political movements of the time. This event will feature artists Ed Bereal, Larry Broussard, Bobby Farlice, DaShell Hart, Tendai Jordan, Barbara Lewis, and Alyce Smith-Cooper. The conversation will be moderated by curators Malik Gaines, Yael Lipschutz, and Alexandro Segade.
