'Cactus, Only that Which is Forgotten Dies' play

On the 26th November the Society supported the Fundación Manantial de Ilusión through a showing of the performance of 'Cactus, Only that Which is Forgotten Dies' followed by a Q&A session with the Director, Victor Romero and two of the performers, Catalina Azocar and Luis Rodriguez. The play was performed by a group of 26 young actors and musicians who have a range of learning disabilities as a result of Down's Syndrome. The inspirational play, drawing on Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and inspired by the life of Chilean artist Violetta Parra combined acting with music, costumes and dramatic backdrops to retell the tragic love story. The event was supported by around 25 members and friends of the Society who were treated to a moving piece of theatre that represented a strong display of creativity and energy from the group of young people.

The event was supported with funds from the Alan Macdonald Endowment and was part of the Society's programme of 'Virtual' arts events from Chile.
