The second edition of the Lanzarote School Theater Festival , an initiative promoted by the Cabildo de Lanzarote Culture area and the Cuerpo Teatro company, has sought a solution to the closure of the scenic spaces to be able to celebrate the closing ceremony: the digital alternative .
Faced with the impossibility of carrying out the theatrical performances, students and teachers have produced videos from home in which they explain the arguments and stories they had developed, interpret fragments of the work, describe the work and creative process that they have followed or even They create homemade scenes. And all this can be enjoyed from this Monday, May 25, and until June 25, on the Lanzarote School Theater Festival website .
219 people have participated in the videos, between teachers and students, belonging to the 10 educational centers that this year signed up for this 2nd edition of the Festival, including students from single schools, 1st, 3rd and 6th grade Primary, 1st, 2nd and 4th of ESO and 1st of Baccalaureate.
The School Theater Festival of Lanzarote is offered to all educational centers on the island, at the beginning of the academic year, through the Table of Vice Principals of Primary and the Table of Vice Principals of Secondary that coordinates the Education area of the Cabildo de Lanzarote.
The peculiarity of this situation, and the fact that teachers and students were locked up at home, has caused their families to also get involved in the making of the videos, something that has been highly valued by Cultura Lanzarote. and by Cuerpo Teatro.
“ The students and their tutors have adapted to the situation. They have not been able to perform the plays that all of them had planned, but they have made a titanic effort and have given the best of themselves to offer us another product in return. They should feel proud”, declared the Councilor for Culture of the Cabildo de Lanzarote, Alberto Aguiar.
For his part, Siscu Ruz, director of Cuerpo Teatro and coordinator of the Festival, has also had words of praise for the more than 200 people involved in the project. «From their homes, they have all put their best effort into continuing to work and offer, even if it was in a different, different format, a product that was entertaining and interesting,» Ruz declared. «Furthermore, the fact that it had necessarily been carried out inside the house has caused families to join the creative process, so the number of people involved has been much higher than the 219 initially planned between teachers and students», has added the coordinator of the Festival.
