A street montage that visibilizes the repression and violence experienced in Chile through a historical review of four of the major abuses committed in the country.


210 Genocidio de la Memoria is a street performance that seeks to visibilize the episodes of repression and constant violence experienced in Chile from 1810 -the year of its supposed independence- onwards. The company rescues four historical events in which the forces of law and order abused their power: the Selknam genocide, the workers' slaughter, the dictatorship, and the social unrest in 2019. In this performance, the concept of genocide is used as the main object of study and creation. It becomes the guiding and reflective thread proposed by the company.

Texts, songs, choreography and music are part of the staging. The fusion of historical and biographical material of the performers triggers a direct link with the audience.

A Breeding Ground for Street Theater

This street theater company began its work in 2014, conforming itself as a laboratory for research, training and creation in street theater based on the intervention of public and private spaces. Live music plays a fundamental role in their work, especially their original songs, written by the company itself. The company premiered, so far, five productions and has also applied its research in 28 formative and creative processes open to the community, both in Chile and abroad.

-Because it is a production that seeks to refresh the historical memory of the repression and extermination suffered by the Chilean people, workers and organizations throughout the country's history. The company also wants to highlight the abuse that powerful groups exert over society, "and how the Chilean State and the church defend the economic interests of these groups, leaving aside the welfare of an entire country".

-Because the play, due to its nature -being a street performance-, manages to establish a deep connection with the audience from the very essence of theater, without major technical devices. "It is based only on the physical skills of the actors and actresses, the live music, the choreographies and the infrastructure of the staging, the use of singing as a communication tool and the historical data given through the text, as well as some performers’ biographical experiences" the company says.

-Because within their performances there is a concrete, close and sensitive one for Chileans: the social outbreak of October 18, 2019, and its episodes of repression and death.

Street Theater: A form of theatrical representation that takes place in open public spaces, where spectators do not pay for the show and commonly attend it spontaneously. Its origins lie in ancient Greece around the 6th century BC. In its modern stage, it was born from the rejection of conventional theatrical venues, in search of an audience that does not frequent the theater as a direct socio-political action. This original ideological value meant that during the first half of the 20th century it was associated with proletarian theater. From the 60's onwards, it progressively inclined towards more aesthetic than political objectives, and in the 90's it incorporated greater lighting effects, sound and special effects.
