La Tarumba

La Tarumba was created in 1984 from the study and practice of performing arts. We were shaping and consolidating an Artistic-Educational project that was pioneering and inspiring, inclusive and democratic; involving Peruvian identity in all its dimensions, and in turn, universal and contemporary themes. With "art" it is possible to test the destination we want to build, we can prefigure the person, the country, the world we want to "transform". Its role is and will be to clarify and illuminate our individual or collective experiences; present, past and future.
