A man and a woman are in a hotel room in Kinshasa. He (Alejandro Castillo) is a European businessman who works for a South African company that mines and sells coltan (an essential mineral used in all today’s technology and which has caused the bloodiest wars, normally covered up by blaming warring tribes). She (Katty Kowaleczko) is also a European and has been living in the country for years working as an interpreter. On this occasion, she also gives a voice to a third (never seen) character, who’s fighting to save her son from a terrible fate, whatever the cost.

Written by Catalan playwright Lluïsa Cunillé, Después de mí, el diluvio is a story about inequality and the pressing need to really see those who are invisible and not even taken into consideration. We live side-by-side with them, but their lives are predisposed towards exploitation and poverty. It’s most definitely a play about a lack of conscience.

DIRECTOR

Alejandro Castillo This theater actor and director first studied at the University of Chile and then at the Conservatoire National Supérieur D´Art Dramatique. His participation in successful Chilean television series such as Sucupira, Rompecorazón and Machos catapulted him to fame, even though he had already enjoyed a successful career in theater, taking part in more than 50 productions as an actor, director or both. He’s also delved into the cinema, with movies such as El último hombre and Kiltro. As well as his work on the stage, he’s also a theater teacher.

DRAMATURGY

Lluïsa Cunillé Born in Barcelona in 1961, she has premiered more than 40 theater plays in Spanish and Catalan and won several awards, including the National Dramatic Literature award, the first woman in Spain to do so. Her plays are based on everyday situations that, at first sight, seem straightforward but which, under the surface, involve more complex events.
