Feos – Destinos 3rd Chicago International Latino Theater Festival
Destinos: 3rd Chicago International Latino Theater Festival
Chile | North America Premiere
Written by Guillermo Calderón
Directed by Aline Kuppenheim
Produced by Teatro y su doble
Legendary director and puppet artist Aline Kuppenheim’s Feos, is her first collaboration with Guillermo Calderón, Chile’s most recognized contemporary playwright, inspired by “La Noche de los Feos” (Night of the Ugly), a popular short story by Uruguayan novelist Mario Benedetti. Feos is a visual feast of Bunraku-style puppetry incorporating stop motion projections. This intimate portrayal of two strangers who meet by chance at a movie theater, examines our perception of beauty, and explores the idea of what it means to be loved. It challenges audiences to look at their own faults with honesty and acceptance.
Co-presented by Chicago Latino Theater Alliance and Chopin Theatre.
In Spanish with English supertitles.
