Is it worth asking questions aboutthe nature oflove? Argentine playwright and directorDaniel Veroneseis back working inthe countrywithChileanactors,premieringthis play written in confinement.
Ella loama is a play about love and about conversations about love. It’s about what’s sensitive about it and what’s felt about it. Do attempts to understand it in a different, non-sentimental way work? Is it worth asking about or not trusting love, looking for the hard cold truth? One night, stuck at home, a couple is visited by a friend of theirs, bringing news about the presence of love in their lives.
The functions of Ella loama in Chile are part of the world premiere of the new work by director and playwright Daniel Veronese (Encuentrosbreves con hombresrepulsivos), who’s back directing a Chilean cast, made up of actors Tamara Acosta, Cristián Carvajal and Álvaro Espinoza.
