The theatre festival Muestra Escénica Iberoamericana (MEI) has programmed 'Pescador' (Seaman), the third theatre performance of the Chilean company Silencio Blanco. A puppet-play for adults, and dedicated to seamen.
Pescador delves into the intimate sensation of men working in solitary trades that were confronted with the immensity of nature. This work deals with those places that are now strange and even foreign to us: a man with his boat and fishing net establishes an invaluable connection with his craft.
Puppets, elements and manipulators share a space where the actor's physical work and the manipulation of puppets take a new perspective to investigate and develop the poetics of the company.
The puppet claims the courage and heroism of everyone it represents in front of five human bodies with pulse and soul.
It is silence in all its forms, it is the dance of silence.
