I apologize for my poor translation of this press release. Read the link about Alejandro Jodorowsky to get a much better idea of what a fine work this is.
Every day we play to be important. We play to see who wins, who punishes who loses.
Saturday April 5, the Municipal Theatre Group, begins a short season at the Auditorium CECATUR with this controversial staging of Alejandro Jodorowsky, led by Maestro Alberto Fabian. Significantly, the Group returns from a successful show in Lagos de Moreno, Jalisco, where they have been named for four consecutive years Encounter Theatre of the Interior of Jalisco.
The game that we play is not exactly a theatrical work, literally. Indeed it has no Shakesperianos nor the nuances Calderonianos, only a great deal of thought.
When you ask Jodorowsky, of what meaning is his work, he comes out with the phrases most pathetic and demagogic… ¡No sé lo que quiero hacer, pero se muy bien lo que no quiero hacer! I do not know what I want to do, but I know very well what I do not want to do! And what he wanted was to make a hole in the exterior wall, called convenience, which we are surrounded with, helped by the society. We are shielded behind it, rejecting everything that is not suited to what we call “normal”.
The cast is composed of: Lizbeth Samanta, Nadya Delgado, Lincy Gomez, Diego Nava, Ramiro Valdes and Guillermo Daniel. You can see on stage a work more refined with mature, agile and dynamic actors both physically and historically.
In this work, the viewer has no escape. For a good work to function, you must provoke the public to Catharsis and a recognition of the self in any of the characters, thhis serving as a purification. In “El Juego que Todos Jugamos” we are all. We were all under a microscope, with our worst fears and weaknesses exposed.
Certainly this work was released in the sixties, but it has not has lost its validity. Only the names have changed, as if we were doomed, by our lethargy, repeating the same history and the same mistakes.
The presentations start in April and continue into May. Tickets will be on sale at the box office at the Auditorium CECATUR half an hour before the show, at a cost of 60 pesos general admission and a 50% discount for students and seniors. It is a work for adolescents and adults. no one loses
