By La Huella Teatro
A journey back to childhood using the sounds and images that evoke feelings, emotions and memories from the first years of life.
This play emerged as the result of human beings’ exploration of early childhood: a primitive state dominated by emotions - happiness, rage, fear, surprise, disgust, sadness - and where elaborate feelings, like the abuse of power or premeditated violence, do not yet exist. That’s where the following question comes from - when does childhood stop being pure? The theory behind this production is that adults have such a powerful influence over children that they leave a permanent mark on them that exists even into adulthood, for better or for worse.

La Huella Teatro
Theater inspired by northern Chile’s human and geographical landscape
Formed in 2004, La Huella Teatro, directed by actress Alejandra Rojas Pinto, is an independent company that creates multidisciplinary productions from native stories from different eras, with the aim of strengthening Antofagasta’s cultural identity. One of its main aims is to bring the theater to low-income families and isolated areas and that’s why its pieces have been performed in places as extreme as Visviri (on the border between Peru, Chile and Bolivia) and Easter Island. It has also toured both Chile and abroad.
