Casa Milagro will perform “Texting for Life”, a presentation on relationships and electronics.

Casa Milagro was organized in 2010 from the need for positive resources for youth afflicted by direct or indirect trauma and abuses. Often youth subjected as child witnesses to violence or abused with little or no substantive treatment for recovery and resolution, manifests in the continuance of violence and bad choices. We utilize the late Brazilian theater director, Augusto Boal’s forum theater techniques from the theater of the oppressed (TO). It presents its message to develop one’s consciousness to create resistance to violence in creating a path towards non-violence. In 2012 we brought in from the Bronx, Pregones Theater Company to train our organization on the TO techniques. We focus on reducing the ‘powerless-ness’ with root causes from oppression and social injustices. We have multiple performances all with a strong element of bullying.
