Theatrical intervention in the Jesuit Crypt of Cordoba, which was rediscovered in 1989. During this intervention, the audience descends into the underworld of Cordoba, passing through the crypt’s ancient corridors, crossing paths with personalities from the city’s own history, as well as mythological figures. The spectators are guided by Tiresias through this urban Hades and pass through different dreamlike situations. The work was an attempt to recover the memory that lies hidden in the crypt.
Work presented within the context of the inauguration ceremonies of ‘Córdoba Capital Americana de la Cultura 2006’ (Cordoba – American capital of culture 2006). Córdoba, Argentina.
