La Peluca

Written & directed by Marcelo Rodríguez


Boundless de Oro is a bilingual theatrical workshop program conducted at senior centers in NYC, in collaboration with the Yolada Laprea Foundation. During this six week workshop, seniors at the East Harlem Neighborhood Senior Center were coached in acting, diction, and movement. They developed skills in script analysis, movement techniques, and character development, all while exercising their minds and bodies and creating dynamic new art. The program culminated in a collaborative final showcase: a performance of La Peluca, a comedy written by Marcelo Rodriguez. This performance was free and open to the community, and took place on May 24th, 2019.
