One of the biggest hits of 2013’s Spanish theatre season was a production of Garcia Lorca’s House of Bernarda Alba performed by eight Roma woman from the troubled El Vacie neigbhorhood in Seville. The play was performed for sell-out audiences all over the country and the press praised it for the extraordinary power of the women, who adapted the script to their own living conditions. They were supported by professionals from the renowned theatre company Atalaya-TNT, which has its headquarters right next to El Vacie, as, a few years ago, the group decided to make its activities more accessible to its immediate neighbours. The unique collaboration that led to this production was the immediate result of this outreach. It also yielded a beautiful film documentary that was presented at ICAF 2014.
