Gómez Peña, La Pocha Nostra & Dreamocracy in America present a binacional ZOOM performance

Glosolalia is a phenomenon sometimes referred to as “ecstatic utterances,” is the uttering of unintelligible, language-like sounds while in a state of ecstasy. Glossolalia is sometimes confused with xenoglossia, which is the biblical “gift of tongues” that can occur during an exorcism. Glossolalia is the shamanic origin of spoken word, from ancient times and practiced by deviant shamans and poets around the world. The Dadaist rediscovered this tradition and in the 60’s there were different movements that expanded the territory of poetry into the realms of performance and public art, visual and sound arts and experimental cinema.

DREAMOCRACY IN AMERICA is a take-no-prisoners transdisciplinary performance tour of the United States and podcast that continues Alexis de Tocqueville’s classic exploration of American democracy, and completes his epic project by engaging with communities on both sides of the 1831 US border.

The goal of Dreamocracy in America is to catalyze a redefinition and reclaiming of democracy from the local to the national level by spreading the message and visions of people who are leading that discussion. This includes artists, activists, people of color, women, Native Americans, members of the LGBTQ community, etc.

Led by artists Victor Payan and Pocha Peña, Dreamocracy in America is a Creative Capital project.
