La Barraca

La Barraca was a traveling theater company coordinated and directed by Federico Garcia Lorca and Eduardo Ugarte. This initiative was framed within the project of Pedagogical Missions, supported by the government of the Second  Republic whose purpose was to bring culture to rural areas in a time when illiteracy was a plague.

After the military coup that triggered the Civil War and the murder of Lorca, the Barraca get dissolved.

With this mural we remember this company, because their work will not be forgotten.

It was a pleasure to participate in this project, lot of thanks to Remedios for count with me in this project.
