  • Nacer: Under the writing and direction of Diego Agurto Beroiza, the play explores the problems of impoverishment of labor, the human body and the power that medicine has over the body. The work invites us to take a look at a reflection on the current economic system and how it affects the relationship between our bodies.

  • Otras: Through simple elements and moments of biting humor, the three actresses on stage share the historical facts and fiction in a dynamic that invites us to look at a web of relationships and social practices which are based on the domination of the male over the female.

  • La Noche de los Pelícanos: The play tells the story of a mayor and her assistant, in the midst of absolute crisis of the Municipality of San Antonio. They are in search of a way to recover the lost votes to be able to win reelection. A junior student offers an idea to organize the biggest carnival in the region: Night of the pelicans. The project becomes the perfect solution to clean the image of the candidate, but her only source of funding is in the hands of the most dangerous drug lord of the central coast, a situation that will force an exchange that will take her desire of power to the limits of a senseless tragedy.

  • La Comadre Lola: The story by Alejandro Sieveking tells us the story of La Comadre Lola and her attempts to save her business. The situation will test ties and affections of the people who accompanied her for years and Lola will be faced with interesting decisions. This staging is characterized as being agile, fun, where you can enjoy various modes and customs of our tender and mischievous Chile. A work full of games entanglements and misunderstandings and where love and loyalty wins.

  • El loco y la triste: The play features a meeting of two marginal characters: Eva, a prostitute full of frustrations, and Huinca, a drunk on the brink of death.

  • Don Manu en la luna: Remind yourself how beautiful it is to have the eyes of a child and come share with Mati, Nico, Mrs. Mary Juliet and Don Manu in this fun and simple story. Mati and Nico, two children of 8 years of age are friends and are fortunate to be neighbors. They get together to play during the day and every night the grandmother of one of them, Mrs. Mary Juliet, tells wonderful stories. This time she starts to tell them about a man named Manu who lives on the moon, and little by little the kids discover it's real.

  • Inocentes: "Innocents" is the adaptation of the play "Victims and Perpetrators" by the German playwright Thomas Jonigk.
    The play is about family pedophilia and features two teenagers in a playground with no time or space, just a blank surface where they develop endless memories under the sarcastic look of others. The teens play with different characters, developing them to great lengths and crudely exposing the sexual abuse they suffered from their parents.
