Different stories that reflect social fragility and the why we all generate violence.

What hurts more, to be silent or to scream? To leave or to wait until they make you disappear? These are some of the questions that the play Deja vu - el corazón también recuerda, by the Bolivian collective Kory Warmis raises.

This play takes as a common thread the story of diverse characters which relate in some way to the violence that we experience every day, at different levels: a girl who sticks newspaper clippings with violent headlines on her clothes, a couple who talks about their sinful love; a woman who talks about her dreams, a mother waiting for her children, and a teenager who is excited about turning 15. An entire society revealing its frailties and habits.

The production shows the parallelism between social relationships and the art of weaving with different colors, wool and spinning wheels as a creation of women. Thus, the creators question violence and its perpetuation. And they ask themselves: why do nightmares repeat themselves again and again?

The company

The Kory Warmis company -which means golden women in Aymara- are a group of 23 indigenous women, including vendors and artisans from Bolivia, who have made theater a very important part of their lives.

"Their personal stories inspired the script of their most famous plays, Kusisita and Deja Vu, el corazón también recuerda. They became an artistic and social movement that, through theater, seeks to help other Bolivian women reflect, and encourages them to break the chain of violence", says the website Nodalcultura.am.

The collective will make its debut at the Santiago a Mil Festival with Kusisita and déjà vu. They seek to meet and share their work and experiences with Chilean women from diverse communities.
