Gómez-Peña gets under your skin even when he’s performing from behind the iron bars of a circus-animal cage. The interdisciplinary artist and writer is known for his innovative use of performance, journalism, video, radio, and installation art to explore cross-cultural issues. A collection of his writings, Warrior for Gringostroika, was recently published by Graywolf Press.
