Where Are They Now? Teatro Runa.
Gonzalez, Edgar Dario
Grassroots Development, v23 n1 p22-25 2002
During the late 1970s and early 1980s, Teatro Runa traveled through Bolivia's rural villages and urban neighborhoods, implementing its "theater and education" project. The project aimed to train teachers to use theater, puppets, and music in the classroom; promote techniques that allow for different ways of learning; and restore creativity to Bolivian popular culture. A renaissance of the project is under way. (SV)
