Based on the book My Hell in the Sename by Edison Llanos, Feroz brings to the stage the stories of four children, who tell of everything they’ve seen and experienced in these children’s homes. These extreme testimonies aim to delve right into the heart-rending routine of their lives, no holds barred, in an attempt to give the main victims of the violence and death in this institution a voice. This production is a piece of experimental theater from the Teatro La Peste Research Center, a company that is celebrating its twentieth anniversary in 2019 and which, for the first time, has decided to work with a cast of mainly pre-teen children, who play the story’s main characters.

Formed in Valparaíso, this group has been working steadily on the performing arts for 20 years, not only creating 20 premieres to date but also carrying out notable consultancy, educational, mediation and site work. “In terms of the issues and areas that theater should tackle, we’re interested in what’s uncomfortable and in issues where it’s difficult to keep our footing. That’s where the questions with perhaps no answers come from; these are exactly the ones we want to ask”, says its members.
