The Banquitas House of Culture and the National Institute of Culture and History, (NICH) have partnered along with the Institute of Creative Arts and the Embassy of Panama in Belize to host a play entitled ‘Canillita’ which highlights a number of social issues that are evident throughout the entire world.


The performance will be held this Friday at the Crystal Palace Auditorium where one member of the Orange Walk Community will have the opportunity to share the stage with actors from Panama.

“Vienen unos compañeros el Viernes y vamos a presentar una hora de teatro que se llama Canillita que es una hora de contenido social; es una familia es una mujer que es pobre, tiene tres hijos uno de ellos enfermo se une con un hombre que es vividor, que se gasta toda la plata en apuestas entonces el hijo que vende periódicos  que es Canillita trata como ayudarla a salir de allí es un adolecente casi quiere salir de eso entonces viene todo un conflicto entre este hombre que lo interpreto yo que se llama Pancho un vividor que le pega a su mujer y llega un punto que bueno Canillita se molesta por eso y hay un enfrentamiento y más que nada es como una crítica social al abuso.”
