“Yuyachkani” is a Quechuan word meaning “I am thinking, I am remembering.” Since 1971, Grupo Cultural Yuyachkani has devoted itself to the collective exploration of embodied social memory, particularly in relation to questions of ethnicity, violence, and memory in Peru. Incorporating visual arts, theatricality, and poetics of found objects, their multidisciplinary performance Discurso de Promoción confronts a narrative of revisionist history they perceive in public relations campaigns about Peru’s upcoming 2021 Bicentennial. Historical representations and allegories revise legends, myths and characters, as well as specific episodes of recent Peruvian history.

Performed in Spanish with English translation.

January 18-19, 8 pm
January 20, 7 pm

“Yuyachkani” es una palabra quechua que significa “Estoy pensando, estoy recordando”; desde 1971, el grupo se ha dedicado bajo este nombre a la exploración colectiva de la memoria social de los cuerpos, particularmente en relación con cuestiones de etnicidad, violencia y memoria en el Perú. Incorporando artes visuales, convivencia de teatralidades, y la poética de objetos encontrados, la presentación multidisciplinaria del colectivo, Discurso de Promoción, es una escritura escénica donde la experiencia del espectador es central, como propuesta política que mira al Perú desde su posición en el mundo, y pone en evidencia las deudas históricas que hoy se confrontan con las celebraciones por el Bicentenario de su fundación republicana en el año 2021.

Presentación en español con traducción en inglés.

18-19 de enero, 8 pm
