LA PESTE

2013 / LA PESTE / La Casa Tomada, San Salvador, El Salvador 

'For if the theatre is like the plague, it is not only because it affects important collectivities and upsets them in an identical way. In the theatre as in the plague there is something both victorious and vengeful. This overflow of vices, this total exorcism which presses and impels the soul to its utmost – all indicate the presence of a state which is nevertheless characterized by extreme strength and in which all the powers of nature are freshly discovered at the moment when something essential is going to be accomplished'

 

Based in Le Théâtre et son Double by Antonin Ataud

Directed by Rodrigo Calderón

Created with the students of The National Center of the Arts in El Salvador
