In The year I was born , ten Chilean performers born during the dictatorship reconstruct their parent’s youth from photos, letters, tapes, used clothes, stories, dim memories. Who were my parents when was I born? What was Chile like before I learned to speak? How many versions are there about what happened before I existed or when I was so young that I can’t remember?
Each performer reconstructs scenes from the past in order to understand something for their future. The year I was born operates around the borders of reality and fiction, the encounter of two generations, the intersection of national history and private stories.
The year I was born is based on the same concept of Mi vida después , a play based on the biography of performers born during the Argentinean dictatorship, written and directed also by Lola Arias.
