ESPACIOS COMUNES is a project created to promote the cultural encounter between Argentina and Chile, and give visibility to the work carried out by emerging theater companies in both countries. It also aimed to encourage the staging of Ibero-American texts of various poetics and styles.
On the Chilean side, the Santiago based company La Factoría, directed by Marcos Belmar, presented Los Albornoz. Delicias de una familia argentina, from Los Macocos Banda Teatral. The choreographer Marjorie Ávalos premiered Mujeres de arena, by the Mexican Humberto Robles, a project about the disappearance and murder of women in Ciudad Juárez. Margarita Santa María directed Dos para el camino, by César de María, and the renowned actor and director Pablo Krögh performed his solo show El Quijote no existe.
From Argentina, Sebastián Ricci premiered El Desvarío, by Jorge Díaz; Guido D’Albo and Roberto Municoy, under the direction of Carlos Ianni, presented Monogamia, by Marco Antonio de la Parra, and Armando Saire and Néstor Navarría showed their award-winning monologue Bengala. Ezequiel Molina and La Empresa Humana premiered Dos pasos de paz, dos pasos de guerra, by the Dominican Reynaldo Disla, and Solana Landaburu directed Pony, nunca te he negado una lágrima, a text by Venezuelan Gustavo Ott.
All the proposals were to be seen in art spaces in Buenos Aires and Santiago, in addition to the many activities such as talks, workshops and open rehearsals for vulnerable neighborhoods and art students.
ESPACIOS COMUNES was conceived as a space of reflection on Latin America theater and a meeting point for the coexistence of the different scenic languages of Argentina and Chile.
