Bonobo

Tú Amarás

Show

Italian premiere
In Spanish with English surtitles
Duration: 75'

Addressing challenging – and very timely – questions about discrimination, this prize-winning play by the Chilean company Bonobo interrogates the relationship between progress and intolerance: who are the “others”? What marks their difference? How do they become the enemy? A team of doctors prepare to give a talk on prejudice in medicine in the context of an international conference, just as some extraterrestrials, the Amenites, have come to settle on earth. Misunderstood, marginalized and feared, these beings provide the opportunity to reflect on love and hate, democracy and xenophobia. Using dark humour and irony, the production’s fast-paced and uncomfortable dialogues create an atmosphere of fear, awkwardness and absurdity. Great acting and a very intelligent script make this an unmissable show.

Bonobo is a theatre company founded in Chile in 2012 by Pablo Manzi and Andreina Olivari with the aim of bringing to the stage new works that stimulate critical reflection on our times. Through a methodology of collective creation that emphasises research and improvisation, they have become one of the most renowned young groups of Chilean theatre. To date, they have premiered Amansadura (2012), Donde viven los bárbaros (2015) and Tú amarás (2018) to great success, touring international festivals, from Germany, the The Netherlands and Spain, to Mexico, Brazil, Peru and Chile.
