"A theater for the lionfish"
Monday May 21, 2012 / by: Rodrigo De la Serna.
Nobody asks to build a theater for this animal. If it is not done for people imagine it to a fish ... The truth is that out there is a play whose main characters are the children and unfortunately another protagonist is the lionfish in the Caribbean waters, already mentioned on another occasion.
This time the theater in Quintana Roo wins again another of his battles, first to stage a reality that will affect us in the short term. Also because the play "The Lionfish, Reef's new neighbor" states clearly, details and cases of the presence of this animal in the world that we all live on the coast: the Mesoamerican Reef.
Another positive element of the work is its use of space, of the available stage. Actors and producers have made a cinema (Cinepolis) to become a multimedia theater, appealing to a demanding and sincere 60 kids not easy to entertain (make aware). And these young actresses, directors, actors, producers and others who accompany them, do so with quality for more than 40 minutes, the puppets, characters and atmospheres (auditory and lights) on "The Lionfish, Reef's new neighbor", remain attentive including adults, that children bring to also educate.Read more...
