The Song Behind the Machete

After graduating from Bennington, Jaymee Weaver ’15 was awarded a Fulbright grant to Ecuador to explore ways theatre can be used as a tool for realizing social justice goals. “El canto detrás del machete,” a community theatre project to empower women and preserve ancient cultures and natural environments, is the outcome of that work.
