NemcatacoaTeatro is an expressive necessity for a group of youth from the working class district of Fontibon in Bogota, Colombia. From the start they focused on physical training and used stilts as an instrument for actors to enrich their expressive potential. By initially identifying their work with their home community in Bogota’s working class suburb of Fontibon and creating a series of community festivals Nemcatacoa was able to become part of a national community theater network.
