The company

Back to radio theater, empowering imagination

Teatro para ojos cerrados emerged inmidst of the pandemic, as a way to adapt the theatrical experience to physical distancing.

The radio theater-format has allowed the group to maintain the contact between actors and spectators through their voices and the sound universe. The development of imagination through music and auditory stimulation is a fundamental part of the company's plays.

During 2020, working from their homes, they produced the radio plays Los invasores by Egon Wolf, Delirio by Falk Richter and the series Malú a mil by Gonzalo Muñoz-Lerner and Nury Ortego.

-Because it portrays topics that have become extremely current over the last two years, such as the life of Chileans jaded by so much time in pandemic and quarantines, confronted daily with fear and the new way of living to which they have to adapt. In addition, the radio play reviews other topics, like family and friendship relationships. It explores sex from a particular point of view and in its multiple forms, in a wide spectrum of tastes.

-Because the scriptwriters felt that they had no limits to let their imagination fly: this script arises from freedom, without censorship. It explores sexuality in an open way, trying to provide a feminist view. The way an adult woman lives her sexuality today is a complex subject with many edges. We are able to approach these the particular insights of Malú.

Radio Drama: artistic piece composed of words, sound effects and musical tracks. It tells a story listeners can recreate in detail in their mind. The Radio Drama lived its golden age in the 20s, 30s and 40s all over the world, along with the heyday of radio; a trend that in Chile extended until the 70s. Worldwide, perhaps the best known is The War of the Worlds, a play created in 1938 by the American actor and director Orson Welles, which narrated the ravages around the world caused by an alien invasion. Its level of realism was such that it caused panic in thousands of listeners, who thought the news was real (nevertheless, the story was based on the homonymous novel by H.G. Wells).

Radio Drama in Chile: Memoria Chilena (digital branch of the National Library) tells that the first radio theater in Chile was broadcast in 1932, on the now dissolved Radio Universo. It was called La enemiga (The Enemy) and starred Maruja Cifuentes and Carlos Justiniano. Broadcasted mainly at noon, these stories had a dramatic feature and aimed at female audiences, although in the following decades -until the 1970s- radio theater was also a fertile format for comedies and even suspense. Emblems of that period are Hogar dulce hogar, Residencial La Pichanga, La bandita de Firulete and the well-remembered Radiotanda, with actress Ana González and her character "La Desideria". In the horror genre, the most famous radio drama plays were El doctor Mortis and Lo que cuenta el viento.
