Colegio San Gabriel Theater Colegio San Gabriel Theater By eclécticO Int., Inc.

eclécticO Int., Inc. in alliance with SOS Inc. (Servicios Orientados al Sordo) organized the second workshop in San Juan at. Colegio San Gabriel (a school for the Deaf). It produced a formidable turn out of over one hundred students and teachers. The workshop focused more on working with people with hearing disabilities.

Throughout the whole morning there were two sign language interpreters. It began with a few ice-breaking exercises using audience participation to warm up, before the eclécticO Int., Inc. team gave demonstrations of accessibility within the performing arts. The seminar was ended with a fantastic and unique performance taken from the Atrevete show of Edgar Figueroa, who is deaf, interpreting a piece of music sang by Abdyel Reyes. This summed up the day and what was learned in the workshop - accessibility for artists and audiences with special needs is possible and must be achieved.  The workshop and the performance received a great reception from the audience.
