Tsunami Project proposes to innovate in the company’s artistic production methods – linked in recent years to European dramaturgy and the notion of re-writing rescuing from our own historicity as a theatre company, some materials that can be translated into a new artistic product. In relation to the above, The Tsunami project that La Puerta articulates is understood as a tsunami regarding our own work in the field of performing arts, located in the Chile of today. We are moved by the following questions: What can art say at this time, considering ongoing social processes? How can our work be projected, from the career of La Puerta theatre company on the eve of its 30 years of life, to generate a meaningful bond with the audiences, based on a conversation between performing arts and life?
