A liberal and harsh reconstruction of a 1986 play that involves four influential characters from the dictatorship and how they imagine 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 and compares 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 puts on its own version of this original play, asking itself about history, politics and theater and 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 Squella, won the Eugenio Guzmán award at the XV Festival for Emerging Directors, organized by the MA in Theatre Directing at the University of Chile.
