Belova ~ Iacobelli
In 2012, Chilean actress and stage director Tita Iacobelli met the Belgo-Russian puppeteer Natacha Belova in Santiago, Chile at the La Rebelión de los Muñecos festival.
In 2015, again in Santiago, they initiated an experimental theatre laboratory for contemporary puppet theatre. When the two-month experience was over, they decided to develop a play together.
In the backstage of a theatre, an ageing actress struggles to remember why she is there. A young woman arrives to remind her: tonight she must play the part of Arkadina in Chekhov’s The Seagull.
It will be her final role.
The theatrical project Loco is inspired by the Russian author Nikolai Gogol’s short story « Diary of a Madman », by Gogol’s own life and mental illness, and in part by our own experiences.
New production March 2025
Freely inspired by « Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There » by Lewis Carroll. It is a show about a child who plays her way through disaster. In her story, reality is stripped to the bone…
This is a performance project that consists in evoking a mythical figure in urban consumer spaces to create a poetic disruption in a commercial movement.
