Carmelita Tropicana: Kunst Waffen
Alina Troyano, aka Carmelita Tropicana, straddles the world of performance art and theatre using irreverent humor and fantasy to rewrite history from the viewpoints of woman, man, child, and assorted animals and insects. As a bicultural artist, she uses both spoken language and a visual language that integrates live performance with mutimedia, and costumes of fruit, faux fur, camouflage, and Saran wrap to provide social commentary.
Established with the generous support of UM School of Art and Design alumna Penny W. Stamps, the Stamps Speaker Series brings respected emerging and established artists/designers from a broad spectrum of media to the School to conduct a public lecture and engage with students, faculty, and the larger University and Ann Arbor communities.
Additional support is provided by our media sponsor, Michigan Radio. With support from the Program in Latina/o Studies, Program in American Culture, Department of Theatre and Drama, and the Office of the Provost UM Dearborn.
