a story of memory




“The Coup, a story of memory” is the theatrical adaptation in 10-line verse that Roberto Parra Sandoval wrote in different stages of the dictatorship in Chile. The National Library houses these manuscripts and commissioned this project in 2013 to a team made up of playwright Florencia Martínez, director Soledad Cruz,  actor Nicolás Pavez, and  musician Nicolás Láscar. The result was a one-man show, containing various anonymous characters who suffered human rights violations on the outskirts of the capital and in rural areas of Chile. The work gives an account of these events with the human, mischievous tone typical of "Uncle Roberto", a fundamental Chilean author who today, 46 years after the coup, moves us again with this part of our history.


La Maulina is led by the actor and director Soledad Cruz and is made up of an interdisciplinary group of artists working to develop scenic cultural projects that promote Chilean authors and Chilean national identity. We highlight El pago de Chile, a one-person play presented at the Taller Siglo XX and at the Santiago a Mil 2017 Festival, as well as in various theaters throughout Chile. Another work, El Golpe, a Relato de Memoria, adaptation of the unpublished work by Roberto Parra Project, was financed by the National Library in commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the military coup and financed in the re-assembly by Fondart 2017. The play has been presented in several theaters throughout Chile, from GAM to the Santiago OFF Festival, Temporary Theaters of Puerto Montt, Sud a L'Horta in Valencia, Spain, and The Museum of Memory of Santiago, among others.
