Compañía Fa is presented from Friday, November 25 to December 11 with The tragic epic of a huacho sock.
A particular epic comes to Chilean tables from this Friday at Teatro del Puente with “The tragic epic of a huacho sock”, a work in which a metaphor of a community in transformation underlies.
To understand the context a bit: What is an epic? They are usually defined as poems of a narrative nature and of considerable length that present a great and public action or feat. They are led by characters with a heroic spirit and supernatural details are appreciated in the course of the story.
Compañía Fa presents an unprecedented epic starring Cocoroco, a guacho sock who, after learning of the death of his peer Layla, undertakes the search for his body to give it a dignified burial and free his soul to the great spirit. In order to achieve his objective, he will be subject to the help and encounters of other socks who have had to face loneliness, after the sudden disappearances of their loved ones due to the careless action of the “Shoehorn God”.
The work The tragic epic of a guacho sock seeks to question the construction of identity and the sense of belonging through theatrical, dramaturgical and musical interpretation. This story is the metaphor of a community in transformation that is in latent processes of political and social changes.
“In classical literature, transformation materializes in the physical journeys of characters to overcome the adversity of fate. In this case, it is the epic journey that will allow the reunion with a loved one who has disappeared. Contingent search, given the uncertainty of so many missing bodies”, says the theater company Fa, in charge of the production.
An invitation to be entertained, emotional, poetic and reflect on their own communities and personal searches.
Cocoroco is a guacho sock who, after finding out about the death of his peer Layla, undertakes the search for his body to give him a decent burial and free his soul to the great spirit. In order to achieve his goal, he will be subject to the help and meetings of other socks who have had to face loneliness, after the sudden disappearances of their loved ones due to the careless action of the “Shoehorn God”, who determines the community of garments to the tragic designs of their destinies.
The work is presented as an odyssey for a reunion. It is the struggle for the transformation of a hopeful community into a better life, the vindication of life and death through memory action and the search for dignity. The assembly corresponds to the third of the Cía. Fa, preceded by “Pericles Polifónico” (2017 – 2019) and “Love story for an old soul” (Jorge Diaz Dramaturgical Award 2021, 2022).
