Gig: Ecuador!


She got the gig!   Traveling through Ecuador from May 26th through June 18th, studying Ecuadorian theatre art, then collaborating with other artists to write a play.  And she'd spend a week in Esmeraldas, a place she had never heard of before the audition, a place founded by African slaves who'd escaped from shipwrecked slave ships off the Ecuadorian coast in the 16th century, an isolated place where these Africans and their descendants were able to create their own free society untouched by the outside world, a place where African music, dance and traditions still flourish, a place she had to see.  
  
 
What an opportunity.  Her dreams were coming to life.
She'd be grateful for a lifetime to the Dramatic Adventure International Theatre Project!
