Independent Theatre Group
For over two decades Grupo Cultural Yuyachkani has been considered the most important independent theatre group in Peru. One of Yuyachkani’s aims is to promote the creation of a theatre based on dance, music, tradition, masks,symbols and elements from the Peruvian culture. They base their productions on the true elements of Peruvian traditions, passing them on to their audiences. Apart from theatre production work, Yuyachkani teaches seminars and workshops for people of all ages and runs a library specialising in theatre and popular culture. In 2000, Yuyachkani won Peru’s National Human Rights Award.
