Please join us on Saturday for an informal ritual / gathering to build an altar, bring poems, thoughts, images, stories, songs, words or just our bodies to celebrate the passing and the extraordinary life of Augusto Boal.
We will gather in El Parque de Mexico in Lincoln Park just east of the LA river. Plaza de Mexico is close to Plaza de la Raza located at 3540 North mission Road Los Angeles.
Coming from Pasadena and areas north:
Travel south on Huntington Blvd. until it turns into Mission Road. Stay on the lower (right side) level, do not go up over to Soto. Keep travelling south on N. Mission Road past N. Broadway. You’ll see Lincoln Park on your left. Find street parking near Main Street and Mission. We are in the triangular statued stone park at that intersection.
Coming from areas South and West:
Take the 10 Freeway east past the 110 intersection until it joins the 5 freeway. Follow signs for the 10 E (after the 5 splits off again) and exit Soto (first one after this split). Turn Left on Soto, go over the freeway and up over the hill. Follow Soto to Valley Blvd., turn Left on Valley and park near the intersection of Valley and N. Mission. You’ll see us in the little triangular plaza Parque de Mexico on your left.
Tell your friends, families, Boal fans. We’ll see you there.

For your information please look at Amy Goodman’s interview with Augusto Boal in Democracy Now
Augusto Boal, the legendary Brazilian political playwright and popular educator, died Saturday at the age of seventy-eight. He was the founder of the Theater of the Oppressed, a popular international movement for a participatory form of theater as a means of promoting knowledge, democratic forms of interaction, and transformation. We play a never-before-aired interview on his life and work. [includes rush transcript]
