Centro Cultural San Jose
El Tiempo Indómito, Santiago de Chile 2006
Acted as Co-Producer, Co-Director and Production Manager of El Tiempo Indómito, a site-specific promenade event based in the wings of an abandoned 18th-century colonial hospital.
Developed in collaboration with Universidad La República and CECV, this piece took place on the grounds of a semi-abandoned 19th Century leprosy hospital.
With a production cast of over 40 actors, musicians, acrobats, gymnasts, and artists, the piece enveloped an area containing 28 performance stations in 3 buildings, 2 gardens, a dirt field and a chapel.
Inspired by the history of the hospital, of Chile and borrowing traditions of Folkloric Theatre, the story narrated the journey of a group of wandering gypsy souls in search of a home. Based on Marquez’s 100 years of Solitude and the history of the site and Chile.
