This piece turns Las Bienaventuranzas - a street theater piece by Andrés Pérez that pays tribute to this social figure, actor, director, playwright and choreographer - inside out. It revisits the original version - part of Chilean street theater history - with leading actor Rodolfo Pulgar.

This creation by director Horacio Videla is a tribute to the incomparable Andrés Pérez and his outstanding work in street theater, turning his play Las Bienaventuranzas - a street theater piece originally put on in 1983 – inside out. Teatroonirus and Rodolfo Pulgar - who performed in the original version - take us on a journey where the theater of old converses with the country as it is today.

This show is heavily based on bodily movements, with music written by outstanding Chilean composer Ángela Acuña and played live with percussionist Alejandro Soto. Blending street theater with a documentary style, the piece’s variety draws the audience into a dialogue between the then and now.
