During this cycle, seven performances will be offered, as the UPNA Theater Group will perform two performances. The play ‘Tejas Verdes’ will be staged on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 April. The play, written by the Spanish playwright Fermín Cabal Riera and directed by Óscar Orzaiz Resano, begins in 1998 and narrates the atrocities to which a woman, named Colorina, is subjected after being admitted to the detention and torture center for prisoners and prisoners of the Pinochet dictatorship called ‘Tejas Verdes’.
The exhibition will open on Monday 19 with the work ‘Imperator’, by Grupo Maricastaña, from the University of Vigo, under the direction of Fernando Dacosta. The text is based on ‘The resistible rise of Arturo Ui’ that Bertolt Brecht wrote as an allegory of Hitler’s rise to power, which could have been stopped, but which was propitiated by the economic and social circumstances of the time.
The following day, Tuesday 20, will take place the representation of ‘Unity of place’, of the Theater and Dance Group of the University of Granada, written and directed by Rafael Ruiz Álvarez. In a claustrophobic space that simulates a cell, two inmates who have committed murders reel their stories. They remember the mythical Medea and Electra for their profiles, in an approach to shocking current issues. The public will attend the verbal and bodily evolutions of both women, feeling in this way the violence of what is said and what is not said.
On Wednesday, April 21, you will be able to see the play ‘Mariage D’Amour’, directed by Maite Agirre and performed by Antzeriola Factoría Teatral of the UPV-EHU. In it you can see the vicissitudes of two lovers, what unites them and what unites them, and “you can see two different psychophysical realities, two worlds that must create bridges to reach each other. You see, above all, the force of inclusivity, its magic, its poetry “, is indicated in the program.
For its part, on April 22, the Theater Group of the University of León will perform ‘Sweet Jane’, written by Verónica Serrada and directed by Javier Rodríguez de la Varga. The play, whose title is inspired by Lou Reed’s song of the same name, connects different characters with a Joan of Arc who returns from the past: thus, the playwright Sarah Kane, a feminist Muslim activist, or a transsexual who dynamites the concept As a rule -among others- they join their steps to this Juana who reveals to us that the world is full of Juanas.
On the other hand, on Friday, April 23, the play by the playwright María Velasco will be performed ‘Treaty to know how to live for the use of old generations’, an exercise in memory that confronts us with our own current reality, represented by the Aula de Teatro from the University of Burgos. “Old Europe, the questioned democratic Spain, the hackneyed clichés, the leftovers of a Catholic morality, our attitude to the emotional … All the struggles and dreams of the last 50 years of the last century are reflected in the work of María Velasco, who was part of the first edition of the Current Dramaturgy Program, an initiative set up by the INAEM “, as indicated in the program.
The exhibition will close with the representation of ‘Tejas Verdes’, by the UPNA Theater Group, which will take place on Saturday and Sunday, April 24 and 25.
