The performance “Chronicle of a Death Foretold” is a dramatization of the homonymic novel written by Gabriel García Márquez. The patriarchal atmosphere of small towns is turned upside down in just a few hours, during which all the community members undergo a transformation, becoming, from participants to a wedding party, accomplices to a murder. The crime, done in the name of “honor”, due to anachronistic laws, becomes the occasion of disclosure of hidden social conflicts and individual problems. The performance reveals the story of Santiago Nasar from his killers’ point of view. The two young criminals are somehow sentenced to carry out a useless ritual act.
The “Chronicle of a Death Foretold” proves again to be a very contemporary story, showing how personal unfulfillment and a confused identity can be the origin of absurd crimes.
Performance presented in Romanian, with translation into English.
Performance not recommended to audiences under the age of 12.
