Latina/o and Latin American Studies Spring Speakers Series presents WET: A DACAmented Journey, a solo theater performance by Alex Alpharoah
WET… tells the story of one man’s complicated passage from childhood to adulthood as an undocumented resident of the United States. The play captures the desperation that "Dreamers" feel as they are forced to navigate through a broken and bewildering immigration system. We witness the mental, emotional, and psychological hardship one man endures in order to secure his livelihood and his sense of self in the only home he has known: Los Angeles.
Alex Alpharoah is an award-winning stage and film actor, writer, director and spoken word performer. He has performed in important venues like Da Poetry Lounge, Sunday Jump, Washington D.C.’s Busboys and Poets, and New York’s renowned Nuyorican Poets Cafe. As a teaching artist he offers classes where he mentors individuals on how to connect with their deeper selves, using their words and expressions as a form of healing.
