El Ciervo Encantado

There is no translation available.


Triunfadela is an analysis of imaginaries and behaviors that point to the singularities of Cuban existence from the 1960s onwards. It focuses on the psychosocial response to the official progress rhetoric. On stage it seeks to confront viewers’ common sense and generate debate around national issues, creating tensions between reality and discourse.


El Ciervo Encantado (1996, La Habana) was founded by Nelda Castillo. Its conceptual framework is enacted in performances and public interventions that explore national identity and its margins, works that engage without concessions with current emergencies and that seek to unveil invisibilized aspects if the memory of being Cuban.
