This is the fourth episode in a special SaskScapes Presents: The Theatre Series, Theatre in Saskatchewan
Kevin Power is joined by Yulissa Campos, an Ecuadorian actor and playwright now living in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. As she pursued her Theatre degree at the U. of S. she soon realized that she didn't see herself represented on stage. There was a distinct lack of performance options as a Latina woman - a vastly different experience than her artistic life growing up in Ecuador.
Yulissa founded Ay Carumba theatre and with that, has been on a mission to celebrate the Latinx community by bringing to life, characters that accurately portray her culture.
