Teatro Jornalero Sin Fronteras

Partner: Monarcas Group

 

To support the second stage of a collaboration between Teatro Jornalero Sin Fronteras (TJSF), a theater ensemble of Los Angeles day laborers and domestic workers, and Monarcas in Guatemala, a group of artists and professionals who help youth participate in sustainable community development through diverse, participatory projects. This project will build on TJSF Director Lorena Moran’s 2015 skill-building and story-gathering workshop, with the same youth and artists from three rural Mayan communities in Huehuetenango, to create a play, based on their collected stories and experiences, about families who have lost loved ones on the journey to or from Los Angeles.
