Celebration of Teatrotaller at Trustee Council Weekend

Cornell University: postponed to Spring 2022 due to pandemic     

We want to hear from you! Tell us your TT story...   

Message from founder, Isabel Ramos (ic_ramos@yahoo.com):

For those of you who do not know me, my name is Isabel Ramos, and I was the original founder of Teatrotaller back in 1993, when I was only a Kindergarden student (because I am still in my late 20’s).

As a theater student at Cornell, I felt alienated and displaced. Teatrotaller gave me the oxygen and wings I needed to survive and succeed. And still today, 28 years later, my fondest memories of Cornell, stem from my Teatrotaller years and experiences. Teatrotaller became my family and the frame where many lifelong friendships forged. 

I am sure many of you share this feeling and will be happy to join us in planning this activity. 

Here is my proposal:

1-) Contact as many former members as possible and invite them to join us!  We will need everybody’s help.  We can use the Facebook Teatrotaller page, Twitter, your own personal networks, etc. We will also set up a Google form where interested participants can sign up and fill out information about the years attended and productions in which they were involved.

2-) Divide up the interested participants by GENERATIONAL TEAMS, according to the director with whom they worked. The directors will serve as the TEAM leaders, but in case the directors are not interested or cannot participate, anyone is welcome to serve as the TEAM leader. There is no maximum or minimum of members for each TEAM! One person TEAMS are as good as 10 people TEAMS.

3-) Once we have created the GENERATIONAL TEAMS (we aim at having at least 5-6), then, let the FUN begin! 

4-) Each TEAM will create a theatrical/literary/musical/video/creative 2 minute performance answering one question: QUE SIGNIFICO TEATROTALLER PARA TI? As part of the performance, you must include at least FIVE WORDS from titles of productions of that specific GENERATIONAL TEAM. Each TEAM will meet online to create their own performance, starting in September, or whenever the group agrees to meet.

5-) The final GENERATIONAL TEAM performances will be presented online, on Saturday, October 23rd. 

6-) On that online event, we will also host a forum with Jimmy Noriega and Isabel Ramos, Everyone is welcome to participate.
