En La Luna

This play by Chilean poet Vicente Huidobro is a remarkable sample of Latin-American absurdist drama. The comedy was written in the tradition of Alfred Jarry’s Ubu Roi, yet with a distinctive deployment of language proper to the Creationist vanguard. More that one hundred characters on the dramatis personae; only four artists to bring them to life on stage.

This work was produced by Teatro Nãtura and premiered at the Sala de Arte y Ensayo, Universidad Central de Venezuela, within the framework of the 3er Encuentro de Teatro Ucevista in Caracas.
