Mariano Pensotti: Arde Brillante en los Bosques de la Noche (Burnight Bright in the Forest of the Night)
  • Co-presented with the Chicago International Puppet Theater Festival, Argentine author/director Mariano Pensotti’s Burning bright in the forest of the night combines puppet theater and film to weave together the stories of three characters inspired by the Soviet revolution. The performance follows an exhausted university teacher, a young guerrilla fighter, and a TV journalist as they explore government control and the limits of resistance, asking if they are spectators or participants in their country’s history. Seamlessly cycling between live performance, moving image, and puppetry, Pensotti creates fictions within fictions, turning political strife from a bygone era into a question for our time. Burning bright in the forest of the night is presented in Spanish with English supertitles.
