Using the Chekhovian text as a mirror and counterpoint, Aurora Cano delivers a black comedy with an expressionist tone that raises the problems of three professional women, at the same time she presents us: What is the relevance of theater in contemporary Mexico? Do we Mexicans need to go to the theater, the only act of faith that escapes the religious sphere that forces us to believe in something? How does the daily exercise of assuming the skin of a person who lives another cultural, social, political, historical reality affect an actor? Is the theater used to find oneself or to lose oneself? What does Chekhov have to say to three Mexican women from the times of the crisis of the established paradigms in Mexico and in the world?
A black comedy about the social function of art that acquires great relevance in light of the current discussion about cultural policies in our country. Starring Carmen Mastache, Teté Espinoza and Tamara Vallarta, the work has the contemporary scenic design of Jesús Hernández (member of the National System of Art Creators, curator of the Mexican Pavilion at the 2015 Prague Quadrennial and winner of the gold medal to spatial design at the World Stage Design 2017), an evocative and timeless wardrobe by Jerildy Bosch (awarded at the 2007 and 2019 editions of the Prague Quadrennial), a sound space that ranges from contemporary stridency to the deepest romanticism designed by Ignacio García (musician and stage director of great international prestige who currently directs the Almagro Classical Theater Festival in Spain)
Moscú is a production of Teatro de Babel, made under the auspices of the National Institute of Fine Arts and the support of Televisa Cine through the Efiartes program.
