"Do our fictions reflect the world, or is the world a distorted projection of our fictions?"
- Mariano Pensotti
Love, money, family, work, death, and McDonald's: the lives and films of four cineastas blend seamlessly in this tour de force from Argentinian auteur Mariano Pensotti.
A gorgeous bi-level stage frames the real lives and film lives of the characters over the course of a year in Buenos Aires. Can the two ever really be completely distinct? How does art influence real life?
Pensotti ingeniously adapts cinematic techniques - voice-over, fades, panoramic long takes - for the stage, resulting in an intricate portrait of a city, its inhabitants, and a specific epoch.
In Spanish with English surtitles.
MARIANO PENSOTTI is a director, writer, and filmmaker based in Argentinia. He is becoming known worldwide for his singular set design, site-specific performances and writerly depictions of the "lost generation" in South America. Pensotti last visited OtB with 2012's El pasado es un animal grotesco.
*Please note there will be cigarette smoke and a strobe light used during this piece.
