Tratando de hacer una obra que cambie el mundo (An attempt to stage a play that will change the world) is an entertaining piece of theatre which tears into the ‘ultimate delirium of the last romantics’. The absurd situations serve to make it a powerful comical and acute satire on utopia, revolution and politics.A group of politically driven stage actors literally go underground to write an ultimate play that will change the world. However, after four years of isolation they discover that a new government has succeeded in banning all poverty and injustice. With ruthless self-ridicule and boundless energy Chilean ensemble La Re-sentida paint a poignant picture of the importance of art in this modern, ideology-free age.
