Description
A founding member of Culture Clash, Ric Salinas was born in El Salvador, and moved to San Francisco as a child. He grew up in the Mission District and attended San Francisco State University, where he participated in the theater program and earned a degree in Speech Communications. A member of Teatro Latino, Salinas became interested in the Chicano movement because there was not an equivalent within the relatively small community of Salvadoreños in San Francisco. Culture Clash was founded on Cinco de Mayo, 1984 at René Yañez's Galería de la Raza/ Studio 24 in San Francisco's Mission District by Richard Montoya, Ricardo Salinas, Herbert Sigüenza, and José Antonio Burciaga. Culture Clash's brand of Chicano comedic theater has brought them to renowned venues including the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, the Lincoln Center in New York City, the Huntington in Boston, the Goodman Theatre in Chicago, The Alley Theatre in Houston, Texas, the Seattle Repertory Theatre in Seattle, and the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles.
