Today, on World Theatre Day, my thoughts drift back to my trip to Cuba, where I encountered a captivating local character who embodied the spirit of street theatre. She was a lovely lady, dressed in her vibrant Cuban costume, singing with a voice so powerful and beautiful that it echoed through the narrow alleys surrounding the main plaza. With her enchanting presence, she charmed the visitors, leaving a lasting impression on everyone who crossed her path.

Street performances have always held a special place in my heart. Growing up in Brazil, I had the privilege of witnessing countless acts that brought life, color, and energy to the streets. My dear friends, Romina Boemer and Marcelo Cunha from Atelie Teatro in Sao Paulo, are perfect examples of talented performers who've made an impact on me and countless others. Their passion for theatre and the arts is undeniable and incredibly inspiring. Check them out!

The Cuban lady I met had a unique playfulness that can only be found in the streets of Havana. She exuded confidence, and it was clear that she loved performing, dancing, and dressing in a bold way that expressed her authentic self. Her spirit resonated with the essence of street theatre, reminding me of the magic that unfolds when we embrace our true selves and share our art with the world.

In our lives, it's essential to recognize the importance of self-confidence and the freedom to express ourselves through singing, dancing, dressing, or any other form of self-expression. By doing so, we not only celebrate our individuality but also enrich and uplift our communities with encouragement. It's like sending reminders to all to be their true selves, their best-selves.

Let us remember the Cuban lady and her enchanting voice that resonated through the alleys of Havana, and let her story be a testament to the power of authenticity, confidence, diversity, and how it uplifts people and community.


Here some of our favorite quotes on this matter:


 "Theatre is a school. We shall never have done with studying and learning. In the theatre, as in life, we try first to free ourselves, as far as we can, from our own limitations. Then we begin to practice this noble and magical art. Then we begin to dream..." - Michel Saint-Denis


"Theatre is the essential human art form because it embraces all the other arts and because it requires a live and present audience." - Robert Brustein


"Theatre is a form of connection and communication between the audience and the performers that can change the world." - Sarah Ruhl


"In diversity there is beauty and there is strength." - Maya Angelou


"The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls." - Pablo Picasso
