ABOUT THE SHOW: The Public Theater is hosting the international experimental theater festival “Under the Radar.” It features “En Un Sol Amarillo (Memorias De Un Temblor)”, created and performed by Teatro de los Andes.
Equal parts docu-play, physical theatre and comic burlesque, EN UN SOL AMARILLO sheds light on tragedy and corruption with wit and pathos. Fusing actual testimonies with electrifying theatrical imagery, Teatro de los Andes recreates the feverish atmosphere of Bolivia in 1998, when a massive earthquake rocked the country’s foundations. Performed by a chameleonic cast of four, EN UN SOL AMARILLO is an emotionally-charged retelling of a community faced with devastation. (Performed in Spanish with English supertitles)
With a repertoire of seventeen plays and more than twelve hundred performances in Bolivia and world wide, Teatro de los Andes has become one of the most influential and important theatrical groups in South American theatre. Founded in 1991, with its distinctive fusion of western theatrical technique and the Andean tradition, the ensemble is rooted in improvisation, physical and vocal work and the belief in the actor as “actor-poet." Run Time: 65 Minutes.
