Cartas al Pie de un Arbol
Thursday September 17, 8pm
A son tries to recover his memories of childhood in the South. A story of several dead bodies whose ghosts are thought to be joyful inhabitants of Heaven, when in fact, they are souls stuck at the border fence, burned in the desert, frozen in the mountains, suffocated in the trunk of a car or drowned in the river channels. Performed in Spanish.
Mujeres Sonaron Caballos
Thursday and Friday
September 17 and 18, 8pm
Six characters operate in a small area, offering us to see a glimpse into their lives where confusion is larger than any explanations or answers. Narrated by the youngest of the actors, the story is quite simple: three brothers and their partners attend a family dinner that is never consummated. The characters are living objects of observation, laboratory rats studied by other subjects of similar habits: humans and spectators. The six individuals are together in an austere room, where small miseries intertwined in the dialogue and the tension in the atmosphere suggest a tragic end. Performed in Spanish.
Minotastasio y su Familia
Sunday Setpember 20, 3pm
By Hugo Hiriat
Ariadna and Fedra live secluded in a maze. Their mother Pasiphae does not allow anyone to enter their fortified home created by Dedalo to guard brother Minotastasio, better known as the Minotaur. This strange being is part animal, part human and part savage beast who devours his victims, while still remaining an innocent child looking only for the acceptance of his young sisters. But his sisters have a plan. They have invited Teseo, a marine newcomer to these lands, to stay at the center of the labyrinth without knowing the dangers which lie ahead. Performed in Spanish.
