Telenovelas in the Park
Created in 2015, Telenovelas in the Park is a grassroots theater troupe that uses the traditional telenovela model to present key messages about the California drought, water conservation, and the impacts of plastics pollution. It is based on our Agua is Vida/Water is Life Campaign in an effort to educate and inform families about the seriousness of the drought, the importance of water conservation as well as other ways to Heal and Care of La Madre Tierra (Mother Earth).
Through exaggerated acting, family friendly humor, and performances in Spanglish, Telenovelas showcases a traditional “familia” in Los Angeles working hard to achieve the American dream while striving to care for La Madre Tierra. This multigenerational, culturally relevant, educational tool teaches the community about important issues while encouraging a shift towards a healthier and more wholesome lifestyle. The telenovela is written and produced by Mujeres staff.
