Conversations with Activists from Sacrifice Zones



We invite you to this virtual conversation between the team of "PETRIFICACIONES", and MUZOSARE an organization of activist women from the communities of Quintero and Punchuncaví, to discuss important topics regarding the slaughter zones in Chile. Topics that are present in the play "Cómo convertirse en piedra", as for example the "green men" intoxicated with heavy metals in Quintero, and other forms of eco-cide in which human and non-human exploitation are interwoven.

This talk is part of the program PETRIFICACIONES, from Manuela Infante and the show "Cómo Convertirse en Piedra"

Manuela Infante

Director and playwright

Una exploradora de los límites del teatro

Between 2001 and 2016, director, playwright, screenwriter and musician Manuela Infante (1980) worked with the Teatro de Chile, one of the most outstanding Chilean companies of the last two decades, putting on the plays Prat, Cristo, Zoo and Realismo, among others. At the same time, she has carved out a career with her own creations - premiered all over the world - such as Fin, presented at the Festival of Modena; What’s he building in there?, created during an artistic residence at The Watermill Center; On the beach, curated by Bob Wilson and premiered at the Baryshnikov Arts Center in New York and Don’t feed the humans, premiered at the Hebbel am Uffer in Berlin.

Her work has been performed in America, Europe and Asia. Her participation in the

Venice Theater Biennale in 2019 (the first Chilean to be featured on the program) and winning the Stückemarkt award from the Treffen Theater in Berlin particularly stand out. Her latest pieces in Chile have been Estado vegetal (2017, named Best Play and Best Director by the Circle of Art Critics) and Idomeneo (2019).
