DRAGÓN

Guillermo Calderón

In Dragón we follow a hip Chilean performance collective’s brainstorms about their next artistic creation. This time they use the murder of anticolonial activist Walter Rodney as a source of inspiration. In times of fascist resurgence, this topic turns out to be so complex that they start to mistrust and even mislead one another.

In his new creation Guillermo Calderón questions the arts and their position within political battles, with apt humour and depth. Calderón’s work is notable for his attention to the research process, which turns it into political theatre. Last year KVS presented Mateluna, one of his most distinguished creations. With performances in over 25 countries, Calderón is one of Chile’s best represented theatre creators internationally.
