“Beyond theatre”: Theatre’s social role

Colectivo Sustento, in collaboration with the Spanish Cultural Centre and Teatro Perro Muerto, coordinate the first event of “Beyond theatre: The social of theatre”, as part of the commemoration of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. There has been much said about Chilean theatre workers’ distancing from a social role since the end of the dictatorship. Nevertheless, many groups have continued to work in communities around the country, supporting their work through economic juggling and self-generated finance.

The debate brings together 3 experiences in Santiago and an audience of community theatre workers and participants to debate about the social role of theatre, theatre beyond theatre. We talk about our work with “Fénix e Ilusiones” directed towards young offenders.

“Beyond theatre” is also a way of narrating our work in images and words, an idea in progress with the Teatro Perro Muerto photographers: Paul Osses / Sebastián Squella.

Speakers: CODEINFA-Silencio Colectivo; Acción y Arte; Colectivo Sustento-Fénix e Ilusiones.

Our thanks to: Sename Metropolitano, Corporación Social Asociación Cristiana de Jóvenes ACJ.
