GALA Theatre and Teatro Luis Poma: Artist Exchange

GALA Theatre

Partner: Teatro Luis Poma

 

To support an exchange between GALA Theatre in Washington, DC and Teatro Poma in San Salvador. GALA will introduce DC’s Salvadoran community to two leading Salvadoran artists—Roberto Salomón, artistic director of Teatro Poma, and actress Regina Cañas. At GALA, Cañas and Salomón will conduct a workshop with youth, and Cañas will perform a one-woman show directed by Salomón. The performance/workshop will explore the impact of the country’s civil war on its cultural environment. GALA’s Enrique Aviles will travel to El Salvador for a week-long residency with Poma to engage with audiences about his experience as an immigrant in America.
