$ CASINOAMERICA $ is a relentless one-hour verbal
and visual performance collage examining a culture that
glorifies greed. With exaggerated characters, the artist
creates a provocative spectacle that is both hilariously
absurd and politically charged while exploring gambling
as a metaphor for life in post-modern America.
"Torres Tama treads that dangerously vague turf of
performance art gracefully... with dexterity and daring."
