Dramas de Barros: In Pictures

"Dramas De Barros," meaning "Dramas out of Clay" is our first full-fledged drama conference in El Salvador. The month long project was planned and is being implemented by Sara Davis, who serves as the Production Manager at the Arts at Center Street at our headquarters in Tennessee. The conference began with auditions and workshops. The 26 participants were then given parts for an original play written specifically for their community by Gregg Garner. As they work on their acting technique and memorizing lines, Davis is able to help them dialogue about the issues presented in the play (things like respect for the elderly, the allure of immigration to the U.S., gang violence and children's early exposure to violence).  The entire community is looking forward to their performance next week!
