“Session” by Pablo Bontá.

At the end of his reign, Louis XIV summoned a musician to his cabinet to dance again. He boasts of having been a protector of the arts but ignored the cry of his people for bread and work. A figure that echoes many current rulers, told with humor.

The second is “Secession”, of Bonta with performances by Marcelo Di Gennaro, Mayra Perez Morales, Gustavo Silva and Gabriel Yeannoteguy. In the immediate future and in the midst of a terminal crisis in Argentina, an elderly governor tries to overthrow the autocrat and glue a ruined country back together.

While “I told him”, of Aroldi, proposes a family lunch before going to visit the mother in the sanatorium. Donato, 16, confesses to her sister Lorena, who has recently been fired from her job, that she lied about her vote in the presidential election. Pablo, their father, is coming home from the supermarket and Lorena begs her brother not to tell him, since she also fears for her mother’s health. Donato, motivated by his feeling of guilt, does not agree to his sister’s request, triggering a family revolt. It has performances of Federico Burgos, Mauricio Minetti and India Zamero.

“Theater on alert” was born as a creation, after 40 years of uninterrupted democracy, to repel the next attack and always armed with the legitimate weapon of theater.
