«THE TROUPE STANDS OUT ONCE AGAIN FOR A PAINTSTAKING SCENIC WORK AND ITS COMMITMENT TO A SYMBOLIC AND OVER-THE-TOP AESTHETIC» – EL DESCONCIERTO

Political, delirious, and ironic satire that unmasks the historical existence of racism against the Mapuche people in Chile, based on the authoritarian construction of the homeland, its institutions, and elites. Their interest has ideological aims: to generate antagonisms. Between the State of Chile and the Mapuche people, there is a conflict of interests that dates from the foundation of the Republic and that continues unresolved. The perpetuation in power of oligarchic families and how they organized the Republic on a class basis comes from an independence process that never erased the caste society established by Spanish colonialism. On the contrary, taking advantage of what they “learned” to take possession of the New Kingdom, they hierarchized the territory through neo-colonial companies that to this day have Chile divided up among them.

Violence against native nations has been systematic. Deliberately installed in the nineteenth century (independence period), the scenario is built on ideas and images from the history of Chile, presenting a critical allegory of its identity representations: aristocracy, creole, indigenous, blackness, miscegenation and the church. The contemporary staging aestheticizes the normative ideological excesses of the elites that organized Chile, asking:

How have we been culturally building ourselves, and in what have we get to become, uselessly?

The political memory of the nation is sick. We must intervene and re-construct it.
