Diciembre

From the rolling imagination of writer-director Guillermo Calderón comes this politically charged, haunting drama about a near-future war in Chile.

Peppered with large doses of pitch-black comedy, Diciembre takes place on Christmas Eve 2014 in Santiago, a city beseiged by Peruvian forces. Young soldier Jorge returns home on leave to celebrate the holiday with his pregnant twin sisters. When they discover his plans to defect, both react sharply revealing their fiercely entrenched opposing views of the war.

Fast, funny and intense, Calderón strips away the conceits of war and gives us a bracing look at racism, nationalism and pacifism. Coming direct from the Edinburgh International Festival, Teatro en el Blanco is certain to captivate Dublin with its emotive, visceral and razor-sharp theatre.

Performed in Spanish with English surtitles.

Contains strong language.
