Through the Wall

Cuba-Chile, 2012-2014

British theatre director Stephen Bayly accepts an invitation to teach twelve novel actors a technique to overcome Fear. This project follows the teacher through this process, starting at an international workshop in the EICTV of San Antonio de Los Baños (Cuba), and concluding in an urban mise-en-scène in Santiago (Chile). Through Stephen’s work with the Cuban group, we get in touch with the unique flavor of Sanford Meisner’s acting exercises, to later witness their use in a theatrical experiment performed by the Chilean group in public spaces, using pieces of contemporary Chilean Poetry inspired on the emotion Fear. The documentary piece was directed by Antonio Caro and I acted as researcher, in collaboration with Catalina Segú and Iñigo García.
