Teatro y Su Doble: FEOS

Inspired by Uruguayan writer Mario Benedetti’s short story “La Noche de los Feos,” Chilean theater troupe Teatro y Su Doble tenderly and playfully express the unlikely meeting of two strangers in line at a movie theater. United by the loneliness caused by their physical deformities, the pair quickly realize that they have much in common.  Drawing deeply mature emotions, Teatro y Su Doble craft beautiful scenes that touch the soul, despite—or, perhaps, due to—their fundamental strangeness.

 

Chilean theater troupe Teatro y Su Doble is a fiercely creative force. Its multimedia storytelling process borrows techniques from puppetry and animation to create a bold analog to traditional theater. “FEOS,” which debuted at Chile’s esteemed Santiago a Mil International Festival in 2015, refines this innovative approach.
