ATRAPADOS is a socio-critical dance theater performance that raises awareness about a very common modern-day evil - human trafficking. Officially abolished in recent centuries, slavery now shows its existence in forms of human trafficking and exploitation. Especially in South America, mostly women and children are victims of exploitation and get caught in the hands of human traffickers, who exploit and abuse them in forms of prostitution or forced labor. ATRAPADOS aims to raise awareness about this modern-day slavery and engages the audience to take action against this evil.
