Bernardo Rey, Nube Sandoval – CENIT Arte-Natura
For 25 years we have focused on the creation of programs for social rehabilitation using theater as an instrument for pacification, integration, and resolution of conflicts in zones of war, public schools, jails, and centers of assistance for street children in Colombia.
In the last decade we have directed a theater project focusing on psychosocial rehabilitation for refugees victims of torture at the Italian Council for Refugees (CIR) in Rome, gaining the recognition of international awards (Ellen Stewart International Award, NY, 2016, and the “Catarsi-Teatri delle Diversitá ” given by the National Association of Italian Theater Critics, 2017), special mention in the international press, the attention of the universities, and the affirmation of notable personalities in the Italian cultural movement. In the past 3 years we have worked with victims of the Colombian war conflict, creating theater performances result of rehabilitation processes. Right now we are constructing our center of work in the jungles of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, in the Caribbean coast of Colombia.
