Soños is the first Galician play that deals with the situation of foster care youth in a comprehensive way. It’s a fun, enjoyable and amazing show, yet displaying great social strength. A very realistic and highly paced fiction arousing out of the direct contact of the author and director with faster care youth and IGAXES educators, bringing their experiences to the stage. Soños is a window into the reality of youth at risk of exclusion. We are shown their context, their aspirations, their fears. It’s a show that will very easily touch a nerve string in adult and young audience.
Beyond a play, Soños is a de-stigmatization campaign that IGAXES puts into practice to try to wipe out the stigmas that burden youth in foster care. The play, which premieres in Ourense in November, within the framework of the First International Congress on Transition of Youth in Social Protection System to Adult Life, was created with the aim of touring also through secondary schools along with a lesson plan to work on stigmas.
The play will be performed in Galician and to attend the performance you must reserve an entry when registering for the Congress.
