Revolutions International Theatre Festival Presents: Teatro Perro Muerto’s Pinochet, la obra censurada en dictadura
March 15, 2018 - March 16, 2018
A liberal and harsh reconstruction of a 1986 play that depicts four influential characters from the Pinochet dictatorship imagining the future of Chile. Using satire and dark humor, they ask themselves what the transition, a process full of uncertainty and fear, will mean for them. The play talks about power and the dreams of a dominant class as it imagines its place in the future of Chile, comparing the vision for the country 30 years ago with what Chile is today.
With a vertiginous pace and provocative language, the Perro Muerto Theater Company presents its own version of this original play, asking itself about history, politics, and theatre with a special interest in how power is gained, passed on, and spread through society. Pinochet, la obra censurada en dictadura is the company’s first production. Its director, Sebastián Sequella, won the Eugenio Guzmán award at the XV Festival for Emerging Directors, organized by the MA in Theatre Directing at the University of Chile.
Directed by Sebastián Sequella; performed by Valeria Aguilar, Rodrigo Florechaes, Camilo Venegas, and Nicolás Calderón; produced by Victoria Iglesias; integral design by Javier Pavez; audio and visuals by Paul Osses.
