Chilean director Guillermo Calderón's lean, literary theater works return to REDCAT for four days of performances.
From their 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.
Performances are in Spanish with English subtitles. Sunday's screening will be at 7:30 p.m.
