Stage Avant-Garde


Five national plays transformed into audiovisual recordings, of different formats, in different spaces, from diverse disciplines but with recognizable authorships and unique poetics.

A group of actors along with a guest citizen from Iquique, narrate through different scenes based on oral stories: moments, stories and traditions of the past of the inhabitants of Península Cavancha of Iquique from the beginning of the 20th century. Doing a metaphor to the title of each scene with a culinary preparation, the play invites us to laugh and reflect on the identity of an essential neighborhood of the city of Iquique.

The company has dedicated to the rescue of the national playwriting and the discovery and development of a New Local Playwriting. Reflecting on the regional identity, triggers them to explore new staging possibilities in a visual, themed and political way, becoming the company that presented the “iquiqueñismo” in its creations.

Poetic and historical journey about the relation between the Mapuche native people with the colonist, that exposes the trickery and humiliations that the Mapuche have historically suffered, not just by the Chilean state and economic groups interested in their territory, but also by a big part of the population, that despising their traditions and physical features, they have mocked them or transform them into cheap souvenir products for tourists. 

Documentary recording of the mobile show with a great display of actors and dancers, impressive images, frenetic and outrageous action, that invites the audience to participate and think over.

Peces Caminando is a video performance, a shoal of five fishes that walk around the desert and coast of Atacama, playing with the actions and stimulations of landscape and space, this time they don´t interact with the people on the streets, they just replicate the movement of the one that goes in front. Thus, the fishes go through places building clearly defined motion sequences, inviting us to think in another way to circulate and to live in these spaces.

SAY NO MORE tries to reflect, through a nameless couple and a cat, about relationships of affection, engagement and the limits that divide the ability to build and the ability to destroy; asking, from the mythic figure of Charly García, how to coexist with the isolation, fears, desires, prejudices, needs, impulses, lights and shadows of another. Since the day that Charly García jumped from the nineth floor of a hotel room in Mendoza, SHE began to leave; HE began to be acquainted with his cat; THE CAT began to get ill; SHE went further and further; HE wanted to kill THE CAT; THE CAT wanted to die; SHE had to come back. THEY, the three of them, will have to learn to say goodbye.
