The less attractive side of immigration and the end of the ‘Chilean dream’ are part of this first international production by Valparaíso-based company La Peste.

Fronteras is Teatro La Peste Research Center’s first international coproduction, in collaboration with Peru and Mexico and partly financed by the Iberescena Fund and by the Valparaíso Cultural Park’s 2018 residency program. It’s a production that investigates the phenomena of immigration between Latin American countries, providing a universal reflection on this issue and its repercussions on people’s lives. On stage, a family of Peruvian siblings living in Villa El Salvador (a large camp on the outskirts of Lima, mainly made up of Peruvian families who have migrated from the countryside to the city) decides to come to Chile to flee the poverty and problems their elder sister’s links with the Shining Path have caused them. When they get to the border, the younger siblings hand her over to the police in exchange for money, a decision that, 13 years later in 2018 in Chile, has almost surreal consequences. Their idealistic image of Chile as a thriving, progressive country crashes down around them, with the characters unable to relinquish their social class, something that is apparently theirs forever and extends even beyond their country’s borders.
