After many years apart, three cousins decide to meet in Chile in 2015. The host, Roberto, director of a successful NGO, has been involved in the strange murder of a young woman, something that unleashes the guests’ aggression. The get-together, which was supposed to be a quiet night in with family, turns into an ever more terrible evening, made worse by the unexpected arrival of certain characters who only serve to heighten the conflict and reinforce the ideas that each guest holds about the other, their enemy.

Donde viven los bárbaros, by th e Bonobo company with the playwright Pablo Manzi, explores how the violence present in human relations in Chile today has become normal and is even understood and how the idea of the enemy that is always present in the history of people and civilizations is created. The play was a winner at the 2015 Las Condes Festival of Young Theater, with its author winning the award for Best Script from the Art Critics’ Circle the same year.
