News   PHOTO CALL: Palestine, New Mexico Premieres at the Taper Forum
Culture Clash, a Los Angeles-based Chicano performance group, brings the world premiere of Palestine, New Mexico to the Mark Taper Forum for a limited run through Jan. 24.

The new work penned by company member Richard Montoya is about "America’s constantly shifting political landscape exploring loss, identity and the notion of occupied homelands."

"U.S. Army Captain Catherine Siler journeys to the New Mexico reservation home of Private First Class Raymond Birdsong on a search for answers. The questionable circumstances surrounding Ray’s death in Afghanistan create a crisis of conscience for the captain giving her no choice but to re-examine her own life along the way."

Lisa Peterson directs a cast that features LaVonne Rae Andrews, Michelle Diaz, Julia Jones, Geraldine Keams, Russell Means, Richard Montoya, Brandon Oakes, Robert Owens-Greygrass, Kirsten Potter, Kalani Queypo, Justin Rain, Ric Salinas and Herbert Siguenza.

Here is a look at the production:
