Mutilados is an interdisciplinary experience, developed from the testimonies and stories of those who lost part or all of their eyesight at the hands of the police during the 2019 social explosion in Chile. 

The research proposes putting on stage the stories and practices of those without a right to govern, the bodies that make up an impure political movement, without hierarchy, with the power to destabilize the boundaries between the public and private, the political and social. 

The play asks: How can we cleanse our bodies of the contaminated meanings imposed by a capitalist society? How can we return their inherent, particular and forgotten humanity to them? It is those very same bodies that today fight desperately to survive. They dream of an opportunity for dignity, and they stand tall on the front line to fight because they have nothing to lose, because they had nothing to start with.

The audience will attend the work in progress version of this performance and an after talk with the artists.

Luis Guenel Soto is director and cultural curator. His directing career has developed through his role as leader of the company Teatro Niño Proletario. He has been focused on a unique artistic discourse marked by the themes of identity, territory and memory. Guenel has created eight original productions that have been presented through Chile, South America and Europe. As a cultural curator, in 2007, he co-founded the performance festival Cielos del Infinito in Chilean Patagonia.

Ébana Garin is an actress, director, filmmaker and yoga teacher. Cuerpo Indisciplinado (Undisciplined Body) is her own project research in which she is co-founder and leader. In this company she developed a line of scenic and performative research about the body and its relationship with social, political and intimate context. She has worked in theater and circus companies as an actress, trapezist and dancer, and in different project tv and cinema projects as a filmmaker and actress. She currently co-directs the collective CUERPO SUR with Luis Guenel.
