BA’s theatrical scene portrays parenthood, controversy and a satire on religious upbringing


LA SALA ROJA. Written and directed by Victoria Hladilo. A piece that dwells on education and what parents are capable of regarding their children’s welfare. The protagonists are a group of parents that gather in a monthly basis on a kindergarten in order to promote a better care for their kids. Everything works just fine up until an inconvenience suffered by the kindergarten’s director modifies the habitual rhythm of the meeting. With Axel Joswig, Victoria Marroquín, Julieta Petruchi, Daniela Rico Artigas, Manuel Vignau and Víctoria Hladilo.

El camarín de las musas (Mario Bravo 960, 4862-0655). Fridays and Saturdays, 9pm. Tickets: 100 pesos.


CHICOS CATOLICOS, APOSTOLICOS Y ROMANOS By Juan Paya. Four ten-years-old kids from a private Catholic elementary school wonder about religion, the Church, capital sins, hell, sexuality and how can they avoid what is considered a sin or a rule imposed by religion and the adult world. Starring Emmanuel Arias, Juan Manuel Guilera, Nicolás Maiques, Dario Barassi and Juan Paya. Directed by Carlos Kaspar.

EL ESTADIO DE ARENA. Written and directed by Patricio Abadi. Two distanced brothers travel to an Uruguayan beach to scatter their recently deceased father’s ashes. The place holds a lot of memories for each one of them. Among them: playing beach-soccer, their first love experiences, their first kiss but also jealousy and the beginning of their aloofness. With autobiographical elements, Abadi constructs a metaphor for life while depicting his playful nature. In Abadi’s words, “my father Roby is a popular and poetic man, like soccer. He was always very charismatic and the soccer ball is one of the many bridges across which our mutual love circulates. It is a form of union that the three of us have constructed. With my father, we learnt that possibly one plays soccer the way one lives.” Starring Santiago Gobernori, Pablo Seijo and Marina Glezer.

Where and when:

Sarmiento theatre (Sarmiento Av. 2715, 4808-9479). Thursdays to Saturdays, 9pm; Sunday, 8pm. Tickets: 80 pesos.


EL PRINCIPIO DE ARQUIMEDES. By Josep María Miró. Barcelonan author Miró presents a poignant and provocative text that seems to have been extracted from the tabloids. The action takes place in a children’s swimming centre where an alleged act of abuse by one of the teachers comes to surface. The accusation emerges from one of the parents, who claims to have seen a professor consoling a boy who was crying because he didn’t want to get into the pool; apparently, the teacher held the boy in his arms and kissed him in the mouth. Because of this, the parents’ social networks begin to boil with rumours until the alleged culprit is cornered, almost with no evidence against him. Stupendously performed by Juan Minujín, Beatriz Spelzini, Nelson Rueda and Martín Slipak, with admirable, precise directing by Corina Fiorillo
