Sunday 5th March. 20:30 Teatro Gayarre
Vivi Tellas is one of the leading references on the Argentinean theatre scene. Her curatorial inventions, Museum Project and Biodrama have had a strong influence on theatre production in recent years.
She has been invited as a Visiting Professor to New York University for a semester; she directed the Sarmiento Theatre for eight years, where she developed the Biodrama Project, based on theatre and reality; and she has been the curator of stage arts for the Recoleta Cultural Centre. She often works in London, Dublin, Sao Paulo, Barcelona and New York.
Her work as a director always seeks the edge of the theatre institution, from the revolutionary staging of La casa de Bernarda Alba (The House of Bernarda Alba) through to her experience with contemporary opera, staging the provocative John Cage. Some of her documentary theatre works are: Mi Mamá y mi Tía (My Mum and my Aunt); Tres Filósofos con Bigotes (Three Philosophers with Moustaches); Cozarinsky y su Médico (Cozarinsky and his Doctor); Escuela de Conducción (Driving School); Disc Jockey; Mujeres Guía (Guide Women); Rabbi Rabino (New York); O Rabino e seu Filho (The Rabbi and his Son) (Sao Paulo) and La bruja y su hija (The Witch and her Daughter).
