During my staying at Faber, I will offer a lecture about the Argentine post-dictatorship theatre, providing a focus for its contribution to the social memory. There is a common traumatic past of political violence in my country, and my purpose is also to open a Reading Group of a play related to the subject. In addition, with the other members of the team we will discuss the main references for the study of theatre dealing with political violence, and we shall organize the constitution chart for a network of researchers on theatre.
