The Teatro del Azoro company -conformed by the actresses Egly Larreynaga, Alicia Chong and Paola Miranda- stood out strongly on the stage of the National Theater of El Salvador, during the world premiere of their new work, “El Fenómeno”, a sunset on stage that assumes shared responsibilities before the critical situation of social violence that El Salvador is experiencing.
The local theater finally shows us how the cards have been put on the table regarding the issue of gangs, that chimera that has given so much fame to the country through international news.
The Azoro is not the first theater company in the continent that has addressed the issue of gangs. Alborde Teatro did it in Mexico with “La Mara or the night without sleep” and Clash Culture presented in the United States the play “Placas, the most dangerous tattoo”. Now the Salvadoran dramaturgy makes a staging in this regard. The experience is annoying, uncomfortable, but necessary.
