OTRO TEATRO is the initiation in a new canon of work by award winning luciana achugar. OTRO TEATRO, which translates both to “another theater” and “other theater”, examines the role of dance as a form within the context of theater; proposing another kind of theater, a theater of the Other– giving voice to the arcane spirit, instinct and desire that is innate in our bodies. OTRO TEATRO is a dance to be FELT as it is SEEN; it is an occasion for communion.

Initially inspired to make this piece while watching Guillermo Kuitca’s “theatre collages” (visual representations of European Theater houses, as viewed from the stage, crumbling) the image of a collapsed theater strongly resonates as a metaphor for the looming collapse of our current socio-economic system. OTRO TEATRO is placed metaphorically in the ruins of a collapsed theater; and the performance is meant as a way to metaphorically re-build the theater and ourselves. As in all of achugar’s work, the ultimate aim of OTRO TEATRO is to move the audience towards a visceral experience and understanding of dance; and to shift our consciousness from a dualist Cartesian framework where body, mind and spirit are separated to a phenomenological mode in which experience, connection and compassion are given value as true sources of meaning. OTRO TATRO is the continuation of achugar’s previous research that concerns itself with the social contract between audiences and performers.OTRO TEATRO offers an immersive experience for the viewer that relies on real-time transformation.Ultimately, a transformation will occur for everyone present, performers and viewers.
