In the midst of the pandemic, the sons of Panzer, a retired military man in his old age, must decide who will take care of the patriarch, a man with dark secrets. 

The past takes its toll on a family whose patriarchal figure is a retired military man, nicknamed Panzer, with a dark past. Ambition, misery, envy, prejudice, ideals and madness confront each other in the midst of the pandemic, alerting us to a disturbing new way of interacting. 

Panzer, written and directed by Raúl Rocco, and starring the renowned actor Ángel Lattus, was selected to be performed as part of Santiago and Antof a Mil 2022 by the Teatro a Mil’s national theater jury.

The company

Almost six decades of national and international trajectory

The company was founded in 1962 by Pedro de la Barra under the name Teatro Del Desierto. In 1964, it was renamed Compañía de Teatro de la Universidad de Chile sede Antofagasta. In 1981, when the headquarters of the Universidad de Chile merged with the headquarters of the Universidad Técnica de Estado, the Universidad de Antofagasta was born, so the group changed its name again, and, since then, it has been known as Compañía de Teatro de la Universidad de Antofagasta. Nowadays it is recognized as the only professional university theater company between Arica and Santiago. With 59 years of national and international trajectory, and more than 120 productions premiered, it is recognized both inside and outside Chile, which is reflected in their invitation to different festivals such as FITZA, FITAM, FETEF, Temporales Teatrales, Lluvias de Teatro, FITDANZ, and others in Argentina, Colombia, Ecuador and Paraguay. The company is directed by Raúl Rocco Rojas. 

-Because it is a play that illustrates the remainders of a near and still painful past: the present of dozens of military personnel who participated in the crimes committed during the dictatorship and who have not been prosecuted by the justice. A situation that, causes divisions even within families. 

-Because the theater company of the Universidad de Antofagasta is one of the oldest and longest-running theatrical groups in Chile, with presence in several international festivals, and because it stays at the forefront of artistic practices in northern Chile.
