Reviews:

DC METRO THEATER ARTS

In poetry and song, Theater Alliance’s ‘Chorus Within Her’ centers women

The performance is both a container for this period’s pain and loss and a meditation on what persists and resists.

MD THEATER GUIDE

This is a beautiful and precious experience of the sacred and the profane, the absurd and the flat-out real, the mundane and the momentous that informs the decision we make, the paths we reject, and the way we present to the world. This is theatre for all of us.

NO SALGAS CON EL PELO MOJADO 

created and performed by Alina Collins Maldonado

Through a series of actual interviews centering the relationship between Latina mothers and their daughters, No Salgas Con El Pelo Mojado offers a bilingual, intimate portrayal of the Latina experience as seen through its matriarchs. Bringing the words to life of multiple interviewees, this theater piece explores the unanswered questions of identity and cultural expectations passed down through generations. Featuring musical performances by Sharalys Silva and Elena Lacayo. Storytelling Consultant, Jasmine Eileen Coles. Costume and Set Design by Moyenda Kulemeka. Cinematography and Editing by Terry Hunt. A virtual talkback with Alina and Yesenia Iglesias will follow the film.
