Tómame de la Mano (Take My Hand) is a collection of personal stories about overcoming difficult situations, empowerment and appreciation of life.
Directed by Marina Pallares-Elias, this piece is the result of an intensive three-week project working with elderly people in Mexico City, as part of an artist residency project funded by Iberescena-Foro La NaBe.
Using Marina’s own methodology, Raw Theatre or Theatre of Yes, the group has devised a provocative and emotional performance that talks about their own experiences and breathes life into the important social challenges facing participants and audiences alike.
After many years working with various communities and groups around the world, Marina has developed her very own theatre methodology to work with people who are not professional actors but have important stories that should be shared.
