Barelas Stories: Four Workshops
March 9, 2019
10:30 am to 12:30 pm
Residents of Barelas are invited to a series of workshops that will result in a trilogy of plays about the neighborhood. The dates are March 9, 16, 23 and 30. Do you have stories, images, characters or incidents about the neighborhood that you’d like to see in a play? In this series of four sessions we will play with words and techniques that reveal our stories and our styles. The workshops will culminate with a public sharing of stories, anecdotes and scenes at the NHCC. Workshops will be led by Barelas residents/playwrights Leonard Madrid, Raúl Garza and Mónica Sánchez. Presented by the NHCC in partnership with Artful Life. Register here.
