PROJECT 2015 | Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Toto escribe y dirige sus nuevos espectáculos en Buenos Aires, Argentina.
El primero, basado en "La Celestina" de Fernando de Rojas y protagonizado por seis actores. Un Romance Patriótico que sucede en una Argentina imaginaria de mediados del 1800.
La clase alta de terratenientes, la peonada y la indiada se entremezclan para crear un absurdo con aristas dramáticas. Un romance donde el fraseo corporal de los actores nos introducen en un mundo sugestivo.
La pasión carnal, la traición, la magia y los negocios clandestinos de la obra de Rojas se presentan dentro del gran tema que es la problemática de género. Violencia, feminismo, misoginia o simplemente: duda.
El segundo, "Ricitos de Oro", basado en cuentos y estudios de licantropía, protagonizado por Mariela Acosta y Marcelo Aruzzi.
La poética del cabello, una obra sobre el pelo. El juego de la transformación animal o el mundo del cabello, artilugio prejuicioso y canon de belleza.
Un hombre lobo y una postulante a reina del pueblo.
