In black, with her face painted white, with pink blushes, and with a smile from ear to ear. This is how the 250 CEIP students received tincerin Santa Cruz, to the components of abubukakawho, with his traditional attire, the same as his devoted public, acted yesterday at school.
It is likely that Amanhuy, Carlos, Diego and Víctor had one of their most satisfying performances yesterday, with a dedicated audience that responded to each of their interactions. And it is that the Tíncer CEIP has wanted to celebrate April 23 in such a special way, dedicating it to comics and theater. The images of the children shouting and laughing with each one of Abubukaka’s laps, showed that it was a success to involve the whole school in that celebration.
A black curtain, between the columns at the entrance of the school, on which the name of the group could be read, welcomed Abubukaka, who, in addition to juggling, offered an adaptation of the classic Romeo and Juliet, with some clumsy lovers, but which delighted the little ones.
Magali Ramos is the coordinator of the linguistics project that takes place in the school, in which all the teachers participate, and this year they have chosen the theater to celebrate Book Day.
“We have been inviting Abubukaka for months, with the idea of holding a different celebration, and instead of focusing on literature, we started with theater and comics, which are the areas on which we have focused our latest work at school”, Ramos explained at the end of Abubukaka’s performance before the little ones.
The teacher insisted that it is about teamwork, with which they have been developing several projects, “before it was photography and now it was this one”. The connection between actors and audience was more than evident, with continuous interactions, in which only Abubukaka and the schoolchildren were present, who were also in charge of introducing them upon their arrival at the school.
