Hugo Salcedo affirms that theater is the ideal practice for reflecting on the urgent issues that concern us as a society and, from this perspective, children have the power to point out the errors of the system.
In this essay, Salcedo, a leading figure in the Mexican performing arts, takes a look at different plays for children and young people with a migratory theme. A dramaturgy for which there are no taboo subjects and which is no stranger to the tragic consequences that migration has on children. This book, therefore, is not only intended for researchers of children’s and youth theater, but for all those who want to approach contemporary Mexican theater and are interested in a theater committed to reality. One that does not turn its back on the thorniest issues of children’s lives.
Hugo Salcedo was the winner of the 2019 Juan Cervera Award for Research on Performing Arts for Children and Youth for the relevance and timeliness of the topic addressed, the thoroughness in the selection of works, the methodological rigor of the analysis and its expository clarity. Likewise, the jury highlighted its commitment and courage in defending a theatrical creation that does not hide the crudest aspects of reality from children and youth audiences.
