La Construccion del Muro"-(Building the Wall)
After sold out seasons in Costa Rica, El Salvador and Spain, La Construcción del Muro arrives in Spanish to the U.S. The production brings together diverse Central American talents to lay bare the consequences of hate speech against Latino immigrants. Winner of the Audience Award at the Miteu International Theater Festival, Spain, the play examines what happens when an ordinary person becomes part of the machinery of an oppressive political system and how the inconceivable becomes inevitable. The play exposes the effects of hatred against immigrants that flee from violence and poverty. What they encounter across the border is a dystopic panorama the effects of which might be more real than the public cares to accept.
What happens when the discourse of hate gains political clout? Are we that far removed from living the consequences of such a scenario? These are some of the brutal questions that underlie the New York Spanish premiere.
