Talk Description:

luciana achugar's OTRO TEATRO (Other theater or theater for the Other)

An introduction to achugar's work and her ongoing search for another kind of theater, a theater for and of the other that gives voice to the silenced, oppressed and repressed and less valued aspects of being in our bodies and our experience. A search for an undoing of the inequality and abuse of power of the first world (class difference, gender inequality, racism and colonialism), that she grew up deeply aware of having been born and raised in Latin America with politically exiled parents; a search for an undoing from the inside out by subverting the notion that the animal, the irrational, the feminine, the uncivilized, the non-European, and the felt experience is lesser, unruly or “ugly".

achugar's work is not “about” cultural diversity but it has within its aesthetic and perspective an identification with the Other, the uncivilized, the second sex, the non-white European, the animal and the silenced voice of instinct and feminine desire in our society; a feminist Latinx perspective that aims to undo the foundational structures and value system within euro-centric patriarchy.
