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.
