Last Friday the 3rd of December we held the ‘ensayo’ or rather the dress rehearsal for the Teatro de la Comunidad which was a huge success on following evening, Saturday the 4th of December.
The dress rehearsal was I admit a little less, ok MUCH less successful than the show itself – we began late, many acts were missing and no-one (including myself) really knew what we were doing! But despite all the problems, the dress rehearsal was, for me a moment of pure joy. It was the moment that the Teatro de la Comunidad finally came together and I was able to enjoy the acts, as well as see and feel how important the show was for all the participants involved – it was the moment I realised all the hard work was worth it!
And so with an audience of thrilled tourists, me giving orders and handling a microphone for the first time in my life – the participants performed their acts, much better and more professionally than I had hoped or imagined for!
Here are my photos taken during the rehearsal – more photos and video of the actual show coming VERY soon!
