Chilean musician and scriptwriter Ignacio Correa Marfull to release "La contienda", his new play
The play will be available from January 2022 in different theatrical circuits.

TOULOUSE.- The Chilean musician and scriptwriter Ignacio Correa Marfull will soon release “La contienda”, his new play, which will be presented in collaboration with different emerging itinerant theater companies in various cultural scenarios in France, Spain and Mexico.

About the genesis of La contienda, its a Project that started in France, Toulouse specifically, where Correa has resided for the last two years, living far away -but at the same time very closely- the Chilean social outbreak, which invites him to reflect about how many times the same thing has happened, over and over again. In the words of the author "the play was born as a multiscenic theatre play, very marked by those distances that seem to take shape as projective ghosts in the play". In certain aspect and in the first instance, it reminds us the dramaturgy and staging of the German director Peter Weiss.

La contienda, as a theatre play, places us in a neutral position between the storm and the war, which is complemented by a multidisciplinary artistic team that success to project the director's vision in a very particular way. The theatre play is mostly about the role that the Chilean army has played in the different social outbreaks. With this argument, The director use different interesting aesthetic and narrative elements, in order to impose, from the chaos, pain and perplexity, an open and reflective question: what marks the generations.

The constant dynamics of questions and personifications of different personalities and emotions, success to give a geographical and historical nuance to the work, which is confronted with the arbitrary partialization of history, shaping a universal scheme away from the criteria of correct and wrong, inviting in this way to the espectator to reflect about if we have gone too far and if the violence can also become a just order of legitimation of power.

This mechanism and way of making art, very recurrent in the author's previous works (scripts and theatre plays) generate a very interesting and disruptive way of making art, where music works as a determining narrative element, almost to the point to can be called as a "macrostructure", which manages to generate a counterpoint and contrast with the theme of the work.

About the theatre play and the author's expectations, he mentions “I believe that this way of doing theater establishes a dialogue between art and spectator that allows us to place ourselves in different places with different contexts in the same place, making theater a space more democratic and participatory from the artistic expression and the immediate fictionalization of spaces that speak and exist by themselves, but I also believe that the theater is a space for meeting, experimentation and discussion. For me, this space is essentially conflictive and the struggle also stands as the most recurrent nuance of the work, from the aesthetic to the structure "

The play will be available from January 2022 in different theatrical circuits.
