It will have seven performances on Thursday 6th, Friday 7th, Wednesday 12th, Thursday 13th and Saturday 15th December at 20:00, and on Sundays 9th and 16th December at 5:00 p.m.
The student and popular mobilizations around the world in 1968 marked the last decades of the 20th century. Young people and workers took to the streets of the big cities to demand more political freedom, more sexual freedom, more presence in the decisions of society. These movements swollen with a transforming force were also plagued with contradictions. How was 68 built in our imagination? What happened in Latin America and other parts of the periphery of the world? How is it projected onto the 21st century? Do contemporary urban social and student movements actualize that spirit?
Based on a proposal from the CETC to create an opera within the framework of the 50 years of May 68, Matías Feldman, Nicolás Varchausky and Marcelo Brodsky (who has been developing his work 1968. The fire of ideas) face this creative collaboration. A contemporary opera that proposes to think about ’68 as a prism that reflects and projects critical questions and reflections that challenge us today. The direction and meaning of these reflections / reflections cross epochs and continents.
