FUNDarte presents the debut in Florida of Chiflón, the Silence of Coal by Chile’s Silencio Blanco Theatre Company. To keep working, a young miner must travel to Chiflón del Diablo, one of the most dangerous mines in Chile. Based in part of a story by distinguished Chilean author Baldomero Lillo, and devised during trips to the mining town of Lota, it reflects a deep creative process. By not using text or dialogue Chiflón connects with a broad public, with no cultural, social, or age limit.
Silencio Blanco is a collective of seven puppeteers based in Santiago. The cofounders, Santiago Tobar and Dominga Gutiérrez, work with white marionettes constructed with a newspaper base.
