The company

TEATRO DE LA PLAZA was formed in 1983 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, with shows based on folkloric tales. It used to tour all over the country until the year 1986, when their members entered the “Grupo de Titiriteros del Teatro San Martín”, where they worked with the team directed by the great teacher Ariel Bufano until year 1991.
The company made several shows using different techniques and combining actor´s theater from glove puppets, black theater, diverse shades and other techniques, specializing in the animation of objects. In 2000 the company moved to São Paulo, and since then it is representing Brazil in various national and international puppet festivals.

The play

The stage is a place with many dispersed scraps. Nobody could think that the garbage will become a beautiful landscape, where a story will take place, a story which mixes love, humor and poetry.

The actor, as a true magician, converts with mastery every scrap in a beautiful bucolic landscape, but then, however, the human stupidity will again convert it into garbage. Finally, the “agents” of the new reconstruction: Love and hope!

In an incredible example off recycling the “wastes” of a great city, the show tells the history of a garbage man in his daily work at the streets. To the dawn of one more day, when searching the garbage, he finds an old radio, maybe the one that he gave, in a distant past, as a present to his girlfriend.
So, the man dives in his memories and, with incredible ability, he converts, absolutely in front of the public’s eyes, the whole scrap into a beautiful scenery. He transforms cardboard boxes into buildings and houses, woven green in great lawns, an old plastic bottle in a potent tractor, and so on. When he finishes, two countries exist on the stage, separated by a torrential river.
Then, the actor recounts the story of his life. He remembers his old village, his first love and their long fishery afternoons…
The actor, in a simple and accessible language, discusses important aspects of the human behavior and how we throw away precious thesaurus considering them as garbage.
