Thistle Streams Live Tonight!!

The workshop performance of ‘Thistle‘, being performed at CSU San Marcos in California, will stream live tonight through the Soulographie web site!! Watch it at 7 p.m. PST, 10 p.m. EST.

Thistle is the second Central American play. Based closely on the testimony of Rufina Amaya Marquez, the piece details the annihilation of the town of El Mozote, in El Salvador, in 1980, at the had of US trained and supported troops. Rufina, in hiding, witnessed the destruction of her family, and escaped – by miracle. She lived for many years after, believing she had been spared for the express purpose of witnessing to the crimes. The nakedness of the historical record is in balance with an interdisciplinary approach to story telling – featuring abundant music and dance.
