Mario highlighted the premieres of “Silencio” and “Reina”, these works will be presented with the current Mexican context. In the first, Othello is a deaf doctor who finds himself in a mountain, fighting an epidemic “we put an Othello with communication problems. The complexion makes him a violent person, “said the director.
La Reina is an 3rd age actress who was great on the Mexican scene, but now she carries the past on her back.
“We focus on painful topics such as memory, forgetfulness, abandonment and old age”
He points out that Shakespeare is the pretext to address issues such as power, abandonment, violence that are always valid. “It is not that we are looking for something that is fashionable with Shakespeare, but that he talked about things that happened in his immediate context, now we use the same topics to talk about things that weigh us down and happen at this time.”
