Rosa, a portrait of Latin America

About the show

Rosa is a woman of modest origin who grew up in Chile in the 80s, indoctrinated by tributes to the flag and parades in honor of the army. Her life moves on the thread between two eras: that of the Pinochet dictatorship and his show business, a glittery version of a bloody regime, and that of the post-dictatorship, with its promises of equality and emancipation for women.

In the midst of the starry nights of the Atacama Desert, Rosa dreams of being a superhero to fight "the zombies" who defend capitalism to excess. With her painting she will fill the slum of her childhood with flowers and her voice will rise like a song of resistance and liberation.

"A hymn to the life force of women who bend under the blows of fathers, under the shackles of an education and a macho society denying their desire for emancipation and freedom. In this solo written and directed by Cristián Soto (seen at Warlikowski and author of This is the end for David Bobee) for the whimsical Claudia Urrutia – able to go from the laughter of a child to tears strangled in a sob – take shape the ravages of the Chilean dictatorship…Powerful and touching, like a continent." Thomas FLAGEL. Theatre(s) N°9 PRINTEMPS PARIS 2017.

Directed teaser Diana de la Riva and Lelio Moehr. Recorded at La Cours des Trois Coquins-Scène Vivante in Clermont-Ferrand, 2017.
