You shall love

Who’s the enemy? How do they become the enemy? What defines them or makes them different? How do we connect with “others”? These are some of the challenging questions that a group of Chilean doctors ask themselves as they put the finishing touches to their talk for an international conference on prejudice in medicine. It’s a relevant subject that has becoming increasingly more complex due to the recent arrival of the Amenites, extraterrestrials who have come to settle on earth. Misunderstood, marginalized and feared, these beings provide the perfect
opportunity to reflect on hate, love and the implicit violence towards ‘others’. Continuing along the same lines as their previous piece (Donde Viven los Bárbaros) Bonobo once again takes a look at violence towards “others” in a democratic society. Using dark humor and irony, the production’s fast-paced and uncomfortable dialogues create an atmosphere of fear, awkwardness, absurdity
and discomfort.

Tú Amarás (in English, You Shall Love) is the result of an extensive research process developed in residencies at Espacio Checoeslovaquia (Santiago) and Baryshnikov Arts Center (New York).
