An actress gives a monologue about inventing theater on her block. Her neighbors Medea, Antigone, Electra, Phaedra, Aphrodite, Andromache, Hera and Athena (a choir of women from Greek tragedies) are part of her destiny. In the meantime, outside the block, ‘Death’ fools around by ringing doorbells at random in the hope that someone lets them in. This short film was filmed with inhabitants of Block 3283 in the Villa Los Conquistadores in Concepción, Chile.
Mis vecinas trágicas is one of seven creations that make up the project ¿Dónde está el teatro en este presente distópico?, a research project carried out by La Otra Zapatilla, a group from Concepción who, for six months, explored different styles, esthetics and concerns in order to create something artistic during the challenging times of a pandemic and instability in the artistic world.
