The Totally Fake Latino News, Episode 6

Southland Sessions Presents: From high school operas and drive-thru art exhibitions to Chicano comedies and underground DJ sets — we are showcasing the vibrancy of arts and culture across our city today.


The Totally Fake Latino News is a bi-weekly comedy sketch series from performance troupe Culture Clash. Culture Clash offers 10-minute doses of levity, poetics and payasadas (clowning), from their homes and streets of SoCal and beyond as part of La Jolla Playhouse’s acclaimed Without Walls (WOW) program, a series of digitally-delivered productions.

Savage Six finds no stone unturned and very little left on the field. A primal howl at the moon at high tide from La Jolla Shores to the Smokey hills of Silver Lake  and their beloved NorCal. There is complicated love\hate for British pop of the 198O's and distant tortured memory of our catholic school youth and uniforms. CC shouts out all who took bravely to the streets in this season of pandemic and social justice and a deep bow of respect to the 1OO year anniversary of a Woman's Right to Vote and direct our plays!
