Program #51 – Jose Torres Tama #2 – excerpt from “Casino America”, Jose Torres Tama’s sardonic solo performance about America’s fascination with gambling. In this work Tama looks at the metaphor of gambling through a host of characters and voices and examines how it relates to the pursuit of the American Dream. Wickedly funny and right on target. Recorded June 1999 at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe in New York City. With an informative interview with the artist that focuses on the impetus behind the work. Length: 29 minutes.
