En Busca De Un Aplauso
88 plays

 Here’s the first of our Spanish language stories for Domingos en Español, produced by Chemo Tovar, one of our Vocalo Storytellers.  His story is called “In search of applause”, and it’s a profile about an Argentinean immigrant that is living out his dream in Chicago, dancing Tango. 


Chemo Tovar (Zacatecas, México)

·      ¿Por qué quisiste formar parte del VSW en español?

Para mi fue interesante el concepto de el taller. El abrir un espacio donde las personas puden expresar lo que se vive en las comunidades es de total interés. Creo que las oportunidades como esta se deben de aprovechar, tanto por el aprendizaje como por lo que puede se puede aportar.

·      Describe tu historia en 20 segundos.

En busca de un aplauso es la historia de un bailarín y su pasión por el tango, cómo la tradiciones y costumbres de una persona se llevan a donde quiera que está. En la historia se describe como el tango, un baile propio de la cultura argentina, ayuda a Eduardo a sobresalir en un país diferente a de él. También vemos como esta pasión nace gracias a las costumbres de una cultura.

·      ¿Por qué decidiste contar esta historia?

Decidí contar esta historia por que creo que todos los que migran de su país llevan consigo su cultura. La cultura que marca nuestra identidad por medio de nuestras costumbres y tradiciones. Son las cosas que nos mantiene cerca de nuestras raíces sin importar lo lejos que estemos. Por esa razón decidí contar la historia de un migrante que lleva parte de su cultura a donde quiera que este.

·      Describe tu experiencia en el VSW. ¿Qué fue lo que más aprendiste durante este taller?

La experiencia en el taller fue muy agradable, el hecho de compartir este mes con mis compañeros fue de gran aprendizaje. Las clases fueron muy interesantes, los invitados a las platicas nos enseñaron diferentes técnicas de periodismo, desde como hacer una buena entrevista hasta como manejar el equipo. Ahora aprendí a manejar Reaper que fue una de las cosas que me encantaron de el taller.
