On December 4th, the Theatre Guild of Ancon, a historic community theatre established in 1950, was the perfect stage for the kids of the Enlaces Program of Fundación Calicanto to make their debut. The end of the year show was called “Un Pequeño Gran Equipo”, The Great Small Ensemble, name chosen by these little artists to portray how much greatness they can give to the artistic world, even though they are young and beginning their paths as performers. This was their very first exclusive performance, where some kids had never even been inside a theatre nor performed in front of an audience. Backstage they were uneasy, excited by their costumes, the theatre lights and the whispering of the audience coming in.

The show was a brief manifestation of this restless creative energy that Calicanto wants the community to know and promote. It was a collective work between the students and their teachers and within themselves. The movements and concepts were proposed by the kids, organized in five acts of contemporary dance, silent theatre and experimental performance (one solo and four group pieces).

We end the year with this wonderful performance and wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
