Chilean World-Renowned Theater Company "Teatro En El Blanco" Presents "La Reunin"

Nov 6 - 7, 8:30 p.m.

When Christopher Columbus is arrested for abuse of power in the Indies, he begs an audience with Queen Isabella to explain his actions and to plead for absolution. La Reunión, a play written and directed by Trinidad González and played by Trinidad González, Jorge Becker and Tomás González, uses this historic event to build a story that reflects on the human condition in situations of power. This play, the company’s third production, takes on such issues as the vindication of indigenous people, the power of the Church and the oligarchy, and universal class struggle. As in previous works, Teatro en el Blanco has created a minimalist set, focusing attention on the acting and the text that speaks of the human condition in universal terms.

On Tuesday, November 4, from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. the company members will lead a workshop for directors, dramaturges, and actors on Teatro en el Blanco’s renowned ensemble-driven process at On.Stage Black.Box Theater at Miami Dade County Auditorium. The workshop is sponsored by Centro Cultural Español of Miami. RSVP: José Manuel Domínguez at [email protected] or call 786-975-4891.

About Teatro en el Blanco
Teatro en el Blanco is an independent Chilean theater company that functions totally autonomously, generating its own resources, and thus earning the freedom to create and develop its own idiom. La Reunión is the company’s latest production. Its previous works, Neva (2006) and Diciembre (2009), successfully have toured to more than 25 countries in the United Estates, Latin-America, Asia and Europe.

Trinidad González founded Teatro en el Blanco in 2004 along with playwright/director Guillermo Calderón. She plays the lead role in La Reunión and is internationally acclaimed for her roles in Calderón’s Neva and Diciembre. In 2007, she won the Altazor award for best actress for her work in Neva. Her work for the screen include Pecados (Martín Rodríguez, 2011) and Bonsái (Cristián Jiménez, 2011), an official selection at the Cannes Film Festival.

This project is presented as part of FUNDarte’s No Borders Performing Arts Series that presents the newest, most challenging contemporary work being created today in Ibero-America, The Caribbean, and Spain, and work that is reflective of our multi-ethnic and diverse community.
