Power Plays: Voces para todxs is a workshop for Spanish-bilingual teens interested in discovering the art of theater. In fall semester, you will learn about basic elements of acting, improvisation, and playwriting and start developing a project of your choice. The spring semester will be spent creating a performance–online or in-person–acting and directing each other’s plays and ideas. Students will have total creative freedom over their own pieces and content. We believe theatre is a powerful vehicle for the empowerment of young voices.
If you have a story to tell, need to explore your creative side, want to know a little about theatre, or just want to connect to make friends with other teens, this is your chance. We want to hear your voice and share our creative power together! Student stipend at the end of the spring semester!
