Mariano Pensotti


Part of Out There 2015

“A tour de force in which fiction and reality converge.” —British Theatre Guide

Four filmmakers in Buenos Aires each start a new project, not knowing that the creative process will change their lives forever. Mario Pensotti‘s “filmic drama” is performed by a handful of actors seamlessly switching characters on an elaborate split-screen set that allows for fluid shifting between the characters’ lives and the films being shot. This critically acclaimed conceptual collision of art and life ingeniously adapts cinematic techniques for the stage—flashback, montage, cross-cuts, voice-over—to tell compelling stories of love, loss, joy, and despair. The Walker introduced virtuoso director Pensotti on his first US tour with El Pasado es un Animal Grotesco (The Past is a Grotesque Animal) as part of Out There 2012. In Spanish with English surtitles.
