About Teatro Trono:
Teatro Trono started in 1989 as a theatre project for children living in the streets. The aim was to teach the children how to do theatre in order for them to be able to make a living. The pedagogical approach based on a combination of art and trust quickly proved to be a powerful tool in the effort to empower children and youngsters, whom have learned to express themselves, gained self-confidence and a sense of cultural belonging.
Teatro Trono is part of the cultural association COMPA, which has been an important focal point for many children and youngsters in El Alto. Teatro Trono’s children’s and youth theater groups have been on numerous tours in Europe during the past 20 years. The tours are organized in collaboration with the German organization Kinderkulturkarawane, and the purpose is to strengthen the participants’ intercultural competencies and understanding of the UN’s Global Goals.
In 2018, Teatro Trono was recognized as a national theatre education, and the adult actors in Teatro Trono have a state-recognized diploma.
