Performance and Discussion: The Beauty in her Cage

on November 15th and 16th

The Spanish programs at Morgan State University and the University of Maryland Baltimore County present:


La bella en su jaula/The Beauty in Her Cage, a play by Argentinian playwright Rubén Mosquera, based on the real story of Felicitas Guerrero, who is remembered as one of the first cases recognized as femicide in Argentina in 1872. The production touches on the role of women in a society ruled by patriarchal values.

  • A free performance of the play will take place at the Carl J. Murphy Fine Arts Center at Morgan State University on Wednesday, November 15 at 7pm. The entire production will be performed in Spanish with subtitles.
  • On November 16, a dialogue with the playwright, Mosquera, and actresses, Zoe Bertona and Natalia Vacis, will take place on the UMBC campus at 5pm in Fine Arts Room 459.

By engaging in this dialogue, we hope to contribute to our collective understanding of gender-related issues, provoke meaningful discussions, and inspire action towards creating a safer and more equitable society.

UMBC sponsorship: Department of Modern Languages, Linguistics, and Intercultural Communication; the Department of Gender, Women's + Sexuality Studies; the Language, Literacy, and Cultural Doctoral Program; the Dresher Center for the Humanities, the Latinx and Hispanic Faculty Association and the Latin American Feminisms Faculty Workgroup.
