MORE INFO

“Rummages through the origins of racism and classism … with brilliant irony and great impudence.” Marietta Santi, theater critic, Chile

Dive headlong into politically outspoken Latin American theater with the US debut of one of Chile’s leading experimental companies. Set in an 18th-century frontier hacienda, Inútiles follows an effete, aristocratic family in suffocatingly lavish clothes—headed by a matriarch played in drag by an esteemed Chilean actor. As the family flails in the face of a servant rebellion, rebellion by its indigenous Mapuche servants, Inútiles offers a rich, satiric takedown of Colonial racism, debauchery and self-delusion—then and now.

In Spanish, with English supertitles
