In Encuentros breves con hombres repulsivos - a theatrical adaptation of David Foster Wallace’s novel by renowned Argentine director Daniel Veronese - there are two characters: A and B. Two actors interact and, during eight brief and independent meetings, switch from one role to another. The topics vary but all have something in common - contemporary masculinity in their relationships with women (whether these involve love, sex or even loss), putting the lack of communication between genders under scrutiny. Premiered in Argentina in July 2019 with local actors Marcelo Subiotto and Luis Ziembrowski, the Chilean version stars Marcelo Alonso (director of El padre and La última sesión de Freud) and Francisco Reyes (Lear, el rey y su doble, La desobediencia de Marte) and is also directed by Veronese.

Encuentros breves con hombres repulsivos is a Teatro a Mil Foundation and Finis Terrae Theater coproduction with T4 Theater Productions from Argentina.


Daniel Veronese Born in Argentina in 1955, this author, adaptor, actor and theater director is one of the founding members of the experimental theater group El Periférico de Objetos, created in 1989. Among his latest works, La última sesión de Freud, Sonata otoñal, ¿Quién le teme a Virginia Wolf? (performed in Madrid and Mexico City), Bona Gent (performed in Barcelona), Bajo terapia (in its versions in Argentina, Madrid, Catalonia and Lima); Los corderos, Vigilia de noche and Invencible (performed in Madrid) particularly stand out. He has received numerous awards, such as the Platinum KONEX, the First National Award for Playwriting and the Iberian-American MAX.


David Foster Wallace Considered one of the most brilliant and influential figures of his generation, David Foster Wallace (1962-2008) was a North American writer known worldwide for Infinite Jest, a novel chosen by Time magazine as one of the 100 best books published between 1923 and 2006. In 1999, he wrote Brief Interviews with Hideous Men, a work that, like all his prose, brought issues like the malaise of current society, North American idiosyncrasies and the crisis of masculinity at the end of the twentieth century to the fore.
