«they do not go to the theater or cannot access it due to financial resources» so it is "very important".

has been declared
"moved" for being able to resume it, because it is "a very important activity" that shows that
“Small actions in the environment help and collaborate to help other people”.

The objective, Brito has said, is
"Stir awareness from art, to educate, show the signs and put despicable issues on the table so they don't happen again."
The idea was a "creative work" that invites a "Casamundo" that, as he has expressed, is
"a place to defend at any price, ecological and coexistence" where Natalia Medina's dance company is also involved, which has opened "a new world for the participants" in dance, with which they are "very excited".
The leading role of the plot will be carried by "six orphaned actresses of that hecatomb that poses in a permanent search trip" in "a space that is supposed to be the utopia of a better world."

on May 28 "Music-All" will sound with great themes of music from the 50s to today with "many guest artists with different roles and pieces" with the aim of a concert that seeks to "consolidate the work that has been carried out since 2018 in the neighborhoods on the outskirts of Tegucigalpa in Honduras » where the pandemic has generated «serious consequences».
