Festival Santiago a Mil

ORBIS VITAE is a macro-show performed in three parts, on three different dates and three different spaces.
date 18-01-2009 ” The Search ” between Enrique Foster and Apoquindo’s street – Santiago de Chile – Chile
date 25-01-2009 “The Meeting ” Alameda’s central median in front of “La Moneda” – Santiago de Chile – Chile
date 01-02-2009 “Creating Cu ” Huanchaca’s ruins – Antofagasta – Chile

The story of a winged man in search of his beloved, a copper giant of 9 meters high. In the first show it explains his journey in search of his beloved. In the second show, he finds it, gets married and she dies from lack of magic as the Theatre Festival ends the night of their meeting and she can only live during the Festivals magic.
At the last show in the ruins of Huanchaca, it explains the arrival of aliens who discover the ancient ruins activity. Such activity was to build big copper giants through experiments, which made them come to life. And playing the part of space archaeologists from such activity. This dramatic speech afforded us great opportunities to dramatize a show to close the Festival and also an opportunity to merge our large and spectacular props with all the ancestral Chilean culture and its musical richness.
From here an honourable mention for the more than 150 Chilean people who helped us, who created, built, assembled and performed three shows in three weeks. Thank you very much
