In September, the month of “Chileanness”, La Remolienda (“The Carousing”, a classic of our national theater) comes back to the Theater in the Theater series produced by the University of Concepción Cultural Corporation, with a performance on Tuesday 13 at 20:00 in the UdeC Theater.
Written in 1965 by Chilean author Alejandro Sieveking, La Remolienda tells the story of Nicolasa, a peasant widow who, after living for many years in the mountains, decides to take her three innocent sons to town, so they can get acquainted with modern life and find fiancées.
The thing is that, inadvertentlty, they come into a brothel – then called a “casa de remolienda” (“carousing house”) – where the young men will fall in love with three women without knowing their occupation, which leads to an unending series of misunderstandings.
This staging is directed and starred by Hernán Vallejo and La Originaria theater company, consisting of Íñigo Urrutia, Ángela Vallejo, Nathalie Nicloux, Clara María Escobar, Marcela Espinoza, Claudia Hidalgo, Bárbara Santander, Luis Valenzuela, Rodrigo Aceituno, Juan Carlos Cáceres and Cristian Gajardo.
Entrance fee: $8,000 (general audience), $6,000 (balcony and students).
Box office is open on Mondays from 12:00 to 21:30; Tuesdays to Fridays, from 12:00 to 20:00, and Saturdays from 12:00 to 17:00. In case of a concert, theater play or other activity, the box office will remain open until the event starts.
