After performance talk with Guillermo Calderón

Latin America: The School

19 November 2014
“It’s becoming increasingly obvious that the Pinochet dictatorship was never defeated”, says Guillermo Calderón, inviting actors and audiences to an anarchic spectacle and diving off-limits into a guerilla war in Eighties Chile.
A key exponent of Latin America's new political theatre, a theatre of Memory and History, the dramatist and director Guillermo Calderón (b. 1971) makes his Greek debut with his most important work to date. The School (2013) follows the activities of a group of Chilean Leftists as they receive their training in the late nineteen eighties; their goal: to overturn the Pinochet regime.


Chaired by Katia Arfara, theatre specialist, Artistic Director of the Theatre and Dance Department at the Onassis Cultural Centre.
