One of the most highly-regarded young theatre groups in Chile, Teatro de Chile develop creative processes driven by experimentation and investigation. In Zoo, they construct a unique ethnic group and its complete worldview as two scientists present their astonishing lifetime discovery: the last two Tzoolkman people, found 18 months ago.
Obsessed with the idea of having to preserve the Tzoolkman culture they face an insurmountable problem: how can they conserve a culture when its central feature is the need to imitate as a way to survive?
Zoo explores the problematic notion of the production of knowledge by examining the most common academic performance format: the lecture. How much of what is said is valuable and how much is a fantasy and a lie? Does it even matter if we know?
Performed in Spanish with English surtitles.
Co-production: Festival Teatro a Mil and Festival Internacional Buenos Aires.
