II International Monodrama Festival THESPIS
2 - 8 March, 2001, Kiel / Germany


Carlos Concha -Chile

Ramon Griffero, one of the most unusual contemporary South American dramatists, wrote the monodrama La Copas de la Ira -
The Cups of Anger
especially for the young actor Carlos Concha. The performance is directed by Ricardo Balic whose creative theatrical language is representative for the new generation of the Chilean directors.

The audience is being taken on a journey through several reincarnations of one figure that is successively a young pharaoh, a medieval heretic about to be burnt at the stake, Fatima‘s shepherd eavesdropping on the Virgin Mary and finally a secret police agent in Santiago. All these characters have visions that contain either a prophecy or a curse. Their presentation is seasoned with humour and irony and they actually represent a mankind that stopped listening to divine messages.
