Frontera – Playwriting project

The initial concept is for Frontera to be a text on the relationship between a father and son, on the silences and suffering that weave a family relationship, on the expectations any father inevitably projects on his own child, on the difficulties of understanding and accepting the other for who they are, with all their shadows.

The text also aims to reflect on death, on the instinct to cheat it, which has been the topic of much speculation in biotechnology in recent years.

It is possible to transcend pain and death? In the near future, will science allow us to live so long that we are verging on immortality? Should we be able to decide what we want our children to be like using genetic engineering? These are some of the possibilities posed by transhumanists, who believe in a radical shift in the humanism paradigm. And these are also some of the ethical dilemmas that science and medicine are currently grappling with, which in the not-so-distant future will need an ethical, political and social answer.
