Teatro La Re-Sentida ‘La Dictadura de lo Cool’ Chilean theatre

Teatro La Re-Sentida is a Chilean experimental theatre group.

Being Chilean means either having lived through the Pinochet years (1973 – 1990) or having grown up right after the dictatorship ended. In any case, we have a lot of experience with protest. It’s part of our Chilean identity.

Teatro La Re-Sentida (The Resentful)

La Re-sentida (The Resentful) is a collective of young activists and artists from the Chilean national theatre scene who regard theatre as a critical instrument with major political responsibility.

Their work embodies the pulses, visions and ideas of their generation and assumes as duty, audacity, the desecration of taboos and reflection generated from provocation.

Their works give theatrical creation great political responsibility, understanding it as an instrument of critique, reflection and construction. Their works have been performed in more than 17 countries.

Teatro La Re-Sentida is:

  • Diego Acuña
  • Carolina de la Maza
  • Nicolás Herrera
  • Marco La Yera
  • Pedro Muñoz
  • Carolina Palacios
  • Benjamín Westfall


La Dictadura de lo Cool (The Dictatorship of Coolness)

The Dictatorship of Coolness, an American premiere performed in Spanish with supertitles, is a raucous social satire reflecting on art, culture and contemporary lifestyles, inspired by French writer Molière´s The Misanthrope (1666).

The show is set on the 1st of May, as Santiago’s cultural and artistically elite gather to celebrate the new Minister of Culture.

As the streets pulse with the ambiance of protest, the Minister realizes the hypocrisy and inefficiency of bourgeois culture and renounces capitalism and greed, turning the celebration into a nightmare.

In Spanish with English supertitles.
