The Passion of El Hulk Hogancito
June 26, 2011 – 2:00pm
THE PASSION OF EL HULK HOGANCITO is a semi-autobiographical, transdisciplnary, multi-media, literary performance. Hason, the supposedly fictional narrator, wrestles with authorship and obsession, loses the Third Grade Show and Tell showdown, muses on the mentorship of WWF wrestlers, investigates the history of his crybabyness, and explores the trauma of the FBI’s 1970 racist criminalization of two recently immigrated Filipina nurses, one of whom happens to be his mother.
“As horrifying, deeply American, kinda maybe David-Lynch-meets-hip-hop narratives go, this one is a doozy.” — SF Weekly
“Start with the title…Weird but familiar, Catholic and all-american but rendered in Spanish, made somewhat foreign and strange and yet faintly hilarious.” — San Diego CityBeat
