Writer and professor Edwin Culp shares a look into the current moment in the Latin American theater scene, by examining the works of Teatro Ojo (Mexico), Perro Rabioso (Uruguay), Lagartijas Tiradas al Sol (Mexico), and Lola Arias (Argentina). This new generation of artists is dislocating the traditional mechanisms of critical arts. Instead of placing “real” and truthful presentation over staged representation, they reinstate the tensions between presentation and representation in order to set its very framing into question. Rather than eliminating representation altogether, these companies reaffirm their distance from what they are portraying, thereby restoring the tensions of the stage, denaturalizing its consensual context, and giving way to dissensus.
