Prometeo Documental (2003)

There is no translation available.

This is a video documentation of Mapa Teatro’s artistic creation laboratory, with the participation of a group of former inhabitants of the neighborhood of Santa Inés del Cartucho, between 2002 and 2003. The laboratory’s goal was to stage the first act of ‘Prometheus,’ by Heiner Müller (1929-1995), to be performed in the vacant land left after the demolition of El Cartucho. This neighborhood was erased during the gentrification process promoted by the Peñalosa’s administration in 1990. This documentary shows the stories and memories of the people evicted from their space: how they got there, how their lives were there, how their affects and bodies were part of El Cartucho. Both these stories and archive images from the gentrification’s years, allow an approximation to the diverse experiences of reality before, during, and after the demolition and extermination of this historical space.
