A group of Chilean doctors is preparing a presentation for an international conference on humanitarian aid. What does my enemy do to you? How do I make you my enemy? And now you’re my enemy, what do I do with you? These are some of the questions asked when trying to defend dignity, the right that makes us human.
Since their very first production, Bonobo Company has aimed to question and reflect on the democratic society they form part of in Chile. In their previous project, Donde Viven los Bárbaros , they looked to give new significance to the notion of the barbarian in a contemporary context so that they could identify where -in which social groups- violence is currently found in Chilean society today. Using theater, the idea was to expose the audience to the role of the barbarian in a democratic society and show them the new barbarians too.
