Southwark Playhouse (77-85 Newington Causeway, London SE1 6BD)
Please find below some information regarding the Latin American Theatre Festival:
Chile is one of the countries represented at this year's CASA Latin American Theatre Festival, with the participation of Viajeinmovil, a professional theatre company who will be presenting six performances of the acclaimed theatre show Otelo between the 26th and the 30th of September.
This fast, darkly funny and erotically-charged puppetry reimagining of Shakespeare’s classic tragedy focuses on Desdemona’s murder to explore Latin America’s horrific record of femicide. More or less starting around the beginning of Act 4 of Shakespeare’s play, Lago and Emilia join forces and minds to manipulate full-sized mannequins, disembodied heads and Othello’s jealous heart with terrifying results.
This is a masterclass in object theatre and making classics relevant today by Chile’s leading puppetry company who return to CASA after the critically acclaimed performances of Chef in 2011.
Presented in Spanish with English subtitles.
