DESAPARECIDOS#43 is based on a real event that stages the dramatic disappearance of 43 Mexican students from Ayotzinapa Rural Teacher’s College on 26th September 2014. This play through the artistic re-action centers the performance on the emotional impact faced by Mexico after that tragic enforced disappearances. The original dramaturgy, made of not only of words but also of physical actions, sounds, songs, and projected images takes the audiences back to that time and lets them experience the tragedy. It is not only performance but also an authentic act of rebellion, a work exalting freedom of opinion, expression, and demonstration which is now worldwide threatened. It’s an artistic example of the international influence of mass media and globalization and how they can sensitize the public opinion and help to ask for justice. The performance also received the patronage of Amnesty International Italy for its contribution to bring the must raised issue on stage.
