The Tempest Online

In May 2021 we created our third online adapted production of Shakespeare – La Tempestad  – for autistic individuals in response to Covid-19.  This was a co-production with Teatro La Plaza in Lima Peru with People’s Palace Projects as our partners.  The show was created in Spanish and English.

“Comprendo la importancia de conocer las diferencias que hay entre personas con TEA (o síndrome de Down) y personas neurotípicas, para entender y trabajar en nuestras dificultades comunes, pero es hermoso y revelador enfrentarnos a la diversidad congnitiva como si estuviéramos frente a un espejo para descubrir todo aquello en lo que somos iguales. El proyecto que has construido, Kelly, es hermoso también por eso. Un espejo. He aprendido mucho de ti durante estos días.”

“I understand the importance of knowing the differences between people with ASD (or Down Syndrome) and neurotypical people, to understand and work on our shared difficulties, but it is beautiful and revealing to face cognitive diversity as if we were in front of a mirror and to discover that in everything we are equal. Kelly, the project you’ve built is beautiful for this. A mirror. I have learned a lot from you during these days.”
