[theatre] LA LENGUA PRESENTA ‘ADIOS, ROBINSON’ DE JULIO CORTAZAR – RADIOTEATRO [SPANISH WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES]

La Lengua Teatro en Español presents Julio Cortázar’s radio play, “Adios, Robinson” one week only!

“Adios, Robinson” explores what would happen if Robinson Crusoe and Friday returned 300 years later to visit Juan Fernandez Island, where they met as castaways?

Characterized as an anti-colonial, entertaining and ironic fable, Cortázar’s 1977 radio drama represents the dominated and subjugated peoples, who in the name of civilization and progress, have had to reorganize their own subjectivity.

Dates: 28 de noviembre – December 5th.
7PM //Disponible por tiempo limitado.
Where: Youtube.

Why watch?

It’s really a well produced radio theater production by San Francisco’s only Spanish language Latino Theater Company.

It’s about if Robinson Crusoe tried to return to his Caribbean island (after 300 years) today, he’d find the locals are more free than him and he is envious.

“There’s a lot ways of being a canibal.” It’s a line from the play where Robinson realizes that as much as White people try to control, colonize or manipulate Latinos, Mestizos and Afro Latinos, they can never truly be as free or authentic as our culture.

′′I think the central idea is good, ecological, deontological, ‘contestatory’ and very current, and that we Latin Americans must find it congenial for obvious reasons: we’re all a bit Friday.”

Julio Cortázar, 1977
