Barclay Goldsmith is a member of our Moves III class. He has been coming regularly since June of 2016. He is a great example of staying involved and active despite the diagnosis of Parkinson disease. Barclay moved to Tucson as a child in 1947 onto a property where Tohono Chul Park now sits. He attended Stanford University for his undergraduate degree and received his Master of Fine Arts from Carnegie Mellon. Barclay has been involved in theater ever since! He and his wife, Raquel, lived in both Mexico and Argentina for several years where he directed bi-national cultural centers. He then taught theater at Pima College from 1970-2002. His theater work has been community based. He was a member of Teatro Libertad, a collective that toured the state focusing on social issues during the civil rights era in the 1970’s. Recently retired, he was Borderlands Theater’s founder and Producing Director from its start in 1986, directing many of the company’s productions and ongoing programs including the Border Playwrights Project and the U.S./Mexico Project supporting bi-national exchanges. He is on the board and is a founding member of the National New Play Network. Barclay has stage directed productions and been advisor to the Mexico Project at the LARK Play Development Center, New York and the Kennedy Center, Washington, D.C. When he is not busy directing plays, Barclay is an avid reader and volunteers for Tucson Samaritans. Samaritans take food and water into the desert along migrant trails and provide medical aid when needed. Since coming to the PWR!Gym, he notices that he has more energy throughout the day on the days he comes and would love to have another day of class! Barclay, thank you for being an active part of our PWR! family!
