A man and woman meet for the first time in the line at the movie theater. Both have visible physical deformities, are alone and have lived their whole lives being stared at. Inevitably, they realize they have something in common and that they are ‘made for each other’. Together, they decide to go in search of the light behind the darkness, although nothing is quite as it seems.

Inspired by the story La Noche de los Feos by Mario Benedetti and with the playwright Guillermo Calderón, Feos is the latest production by Teatro y Su Doble (formerly the Milagros Theater) which, after its successful premiere in December 2015, is back at Santiago a Mil. As in its previous plays, puppets and animations are the main characters in the story, although this time the performance is for adults.

Financed by FONDART Produced by Teatro y Su Doble (formerly the Milagros Theater) Coproduced by the Teatro a Mil Foundation.

Teatro y su Doble was formed in 2005 as the Milagros Theater to experiment with and create new theatrical styles and different theatrical tools. From the very beginning, puppets were used, with these eventually becoming their tool of choice instead of actors. The puppeteer is at the beck and call of these inanimate objects, an invisible presence, with the two creating what is finally called theater in miniature between them. Inanimate objects convey emotions by bringing the script to life and through the audience’s willingness to believe. The company has already performed two outstanding works, Capote and Sobre la cuerda floja, the latter also coproduced by the Teatro a Mil Foundation.
