It will be particularly useful for theatre workers, social workers, teachers, activists, community workers and anyone interested in using theatre to address societal issues-such as bullying, racism, family and work-related problems, youth and cross-cultural concerns, or community building.

“My Neruda”in Victoria, a  workshop conducted by Sebastian Mena, Lina de Guevara and Lynda Raino. (by invitation only).This workshop took place  July 22 & 23, 2012 and was very successful. As we expected, Neruda’s poetry proved to be a powerful inspiration for the participants, who created unique performance pieces integrating voice and movement, in  Spanish, English or a combination of both. We thank all who attended for their commitment to excellency and for the beauty of their work.

(Chilean Pablo Neruda is one of the greatest poets of the Spanish world…also one of the major poets of all times)
