La Razón Blindada (“Armored Reason”)

Written and Directed by/ Escrita y dirigida porArístides Vargas
Con la actuación de/ Starring Jesús Castaños-Chima & Tony Durán

Esta sublime, ingeniosa y provocativa obra, escrita y dirigida por el dramaturgo argentino Arístides Vargas, fue inspirada en tres fuentes: la clásica novela “El Quijote” de Cervantes, “La verdadera historia de Sancho Panza” de Franz Kafka y los testimonios de Chicho Vargas y otros presos políticos detenidos en la prisión de Rawson durante la “guerra sucia” de la Argentina de los años setenta.

This sublimely witty and provocative play, written and directed by Argentine playwright Arístides Vargas, was triply inspired by the classic novel “El Quixote” by Cervantes, “The Truth About Sancho Panza” by Franz Kafka, and testimonies from Chicho Vargas and other political prisoners held in Rawson Prison during Argentina’s “Dirty War” of the 1970s.

Jesus Castanos-Chima and Tony Duran reprise their roles as political prisoners who are allowed to interact with one another for one hour a week — but must remain in their chairs and never stand.
As they entertain each other with stories of Don Quixote and Sancho Panza, we witness the power of theater to transport them, and us, into the realm of the imagination, despite repressive conditions and even as we remain bound to our seats.

Jesús Castaños Chima y Tony Durán repiten sus papeles como presos políticos que tienen permiso para interactuar unos con otros durante una hora a la semana – pero deben permanecer en sus sillas y nunca estar de pie. Mientras se entretienen con historias de Don Quijote y Sancho Panza, somos testigos del poder del teatro para transportarnos, tanto a ellos como a nosotros, al reino de la imaginación,, a pesar de sus condiciones represivas, incluso mientras permanecemos atados a nuestros asientos.
