About this Event
2201 Argonne Dr, Baltimore, MD 21218#WorldLanguages
You are invited to a thought-provoking, contemporary, Argentine play that portrays the story of Felicitas Guerrero, the first femicide known in Argentina. The play, presented in Spanish with English captions, is a powerful exploration of gender-based violence and its consequences. For your convenience, you can access the English translation here.
The event is free and open to all university faculty, staff, students, and the general public. The event is made possible thanks to the generous support of the Department of World Languages and International Studies and the Latinx, Latin America and Caribbean studies program.
This play sheds light on the tragic story of Felicitas Guerrero, a young Argentine woman who fell victim to femicide in the 19th century. Through its powerful narrative, written by Rubén Mosquera and with compelling performances by Zoe Bertona and Natalia Vacis, the play delves into the complexities of gender inequality, social norms, and the impact of violence against women. By bringing this important issue to the forefront, the production aims to raise awareness, foster dialogue, and promote a change in our society.
We believe that this play will contribute to our collective understanding of gender-related issues, provoke meaningful discussions, and inspire action towards creating a safer and more equitable society. Please mark your calendars for this significant event and encourage your colleagues and students to attend as well. Please feel free to share this invitation with anyone who might be interested.
