REDCAT presents two theater works by the Chilean director Guillermo Calderon.

From the REDCAT website:

In Villa, three women gather around an architectural model of the Villa Grimaldi, a site where thousands were tortured and hundreds were "disappeared," to debate the ideal adaptation of these blood-soaked facilities and grapple with a nation's unwanted legacy. In Discurso, the same three actresses share the role of Michelle Bachelet, Chile's recent president, to deliver an imagined farewell speech that abandons diplomatic parlance to reveal a leader's aspirations, failures and humanity, amid the mechanizations of political life.
Both works will be performed in Spanish with English titles.
