YAL Presenter Unit 2007/2008


The Circuit/Cajas De Carton
Gina Gamboa, presenter

The Circuit is an award-winning collection of independent but intertwined autobiographical stories in which Panchito's family travels a circuit of unending migration from one farm to another as they search for the next harvesting job. Although impermanence and poverty largely define their lives, their faith, hope and back-breaking work enable the family to endure. This workshop will use the corrido song form to help explore the dimensions of Panchito's young life.
