DC area actor, director and theater educator Alina Collins Maldonado brings her latest work, No Salgas Con El Pelo Mojado, to the Kogod Theatre for a staged reading. This bilingual (English and Spanish) theatrical performance was developed from actual interviews and workshops with Latina mothers and daughters over the last two years. Inspired by real accounts, this intimate performance will examine the cultural traditions passed on generationally, those we need to keep and leave behind for the freedom of our future daughters. No Salgas Con El Pelo Mojado was originally developed as part of the 2020-21 NextLOOK residency through The Clarice and Joe’s Movement Emporium and Alina has continued development this year as an Artist in Residence with The Clarice.

This event is part of the Visiting Artist Series. The Clarice's Visiting Artist Series features regional, national and international artists who visit the University of Maryland for performances and other activities. Beyond the stunning work these artists bring to the stage, they are also committed to extensive engagement that creates exciting connections with students and the community. During their time at UMD, Alina will have engaged in:

  • Class visits to students in the UMD School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies
  • Storytelling circles with members of our local community
