Panel Discussion: Latin American Theatre in London 19th September

This Discussion brings together several key scholars and artists to discuss the relationship between Latin American politics and theatre in London. Join us as we address the ways in which artist in London develop textual and cultural translation of Latin America works and how audiences prejudices of Latin America may or may not be challenged through such stagings.This event coincides with the UK premiere of Gambaro’s Siamese Twins at the Theatro Technis and tickets for the production will be raffled off at this event.In 1967 Argentina playwright Griselda Gambaro wrote Siamese Twins, a play which served as a premonition for the state-sponsored violence that would follow a few years later during the Dirty Wars. Throughout her work, Gambaro explores the darker side of human nature and the relationship between citizens and their governments through grotesque characters and harrowing imagery.

Now, in 2011 Siamese Twins along with several other Latin American plays such as Las Brutas Juan Radrigan and Our Private Life by Pedro Miguel Rozo are premiering on London´s stages. These stories present visions of Latin America previously not seen by British audiences, offering new perspectives on their everyday and traditions.
