Los Quiltros

Los Quiltros (The Mongrels)

The Mongrels is the first professional play I directed, and the only play not based on my research. In the beginning, the intention was to create a realistic staging of the dramatic text; but, ended up being a performativ work, where the text was edited and reduced in order to strengthen the scenic strategies that we where developing. “Los Quiltros” installed an opposing force between performative and realistic theater: the play was presented in an abandoned dog pound from the 70s and the actors where located in a big dog cage (creating a barrier between audience and performers); the play develops from that space onward.
