NextLOOK ft. Alina Collins Maldonado: I Am My Mother's Tongue
Through a series of actual interviews centering the relationship between Latinx mothers and their daughters, Alina Collins Maldonado offers us a bilingual, intimate portrayal of the Latinx experience as seen through its matriarchs. As she transforms into each interviewee, her one-woman documentary theater piece explores the unanswered questions of cultural expectations passed down through generations.
This event is part of NextLOOK. In partnership with Joe's Movement Emporium, NextLOOK supports the development of new music, plays, dance and other experiences by regionally-based performing artists. These artists are mentored by seasoned arts administrators from The Clarice and Joe’s Movement Emporium to construct innovative methods of deepening the audience’s involvement in their creative process. By removing logistical barriers of cost and space and providing a sounding board for artists creating new work, NextLOOK invests in the regional arts ecology and creates an accessible, exploratory environment that connects intriguing artists with adventurous audiences.
