The Theater Department of the University of Chile presents That which sounds in the distance is the sound of the sea, a work by Carla Zuñiga, directed by Javier Casanga, and starring actors and actresses from the Theater Department of the Faculty of Arts of the University of Chile. The season will take place from August 2 to 6, with performances every day at 8:00 p.m., in the Antonio Varas Hall of the Chilean National Theater.

“This work proposes to talk about trauma, pain and melancholy through the different stages of life, these being symptoms that escape when the body struggles to survive in the face of some event that marked us at an early stage of our life” , emphasizes its director Javier Casanga, who also comments on the work he has done on this occasion with respect to directing: “I have been investigating a more raw performance, where the empty space is and the actors and actresses, with their emotionality and the decision of the emotion itself. This research on acting in a stripped down way has been a way to invent a new language, and at the same time, create another step for new actresses and actors who start their careers”.

This montage stages a series of traumatic episodes that configure something that we can suffer in our lives forever. Thus, through the narration of different childhood events, the characters relive wounds from those times. “I think it is very important to understand childhood as a place of great density and truth, because it is these places that ultimately determine us as adults, with all our fears, traumas, joys,” the director concludes.
