Brief History of Vida

Grupo de teatro VIDA was founded by Marda Rose in January 2006 in an attempt to create a niche for Spanish language theatre in the heart of Bloomington, Indiana. The group's name forms an acronym for the words Vision, Identity, Drama and Art. From these concepts comes a group of students, professors and members of the Bloomington community striving to create a Spanish cultural experience on stage. While not all members of the group are native speakers, many are bilingual and all share a passion for the Spanish language.
