About: Tejas Verdes

Collide Theatre Presents: Tejas Verdes

A celebration of human rights and freedom
A cry against totalitarianism

The most important human right is the right to life itself. And then prohibition to torture follows. No human being could argue the opposite. But what happens when the wrong people are found – or even elected – in the wrong positions?

Fermín Cabal’s play is a haunting and compelling piece of art about humanity’s brutal ability to cause pain and horror. Tejas Verdes, an idyllic hotel was turned into a torture camp during General Pinochet’s dictatorship in Chile. The play focuses on the story of one woman, Colorina, who comes to symbolise the 3,000 who were violently killed during the Pinochet regime that lasted from 1973 to 1990.
The time is the present – or even the future? – and the place could be any country. Forty-four years after the coup, we felt the need to tell this story again. Violating vital human rights should not be acceptable. Forty-four years later, we wonder whether our world has changed much.

We invite you to join us in this site-specific promenade performance in Tanner Street’s warehouse to celebrate the importance of tolerance and respect in today’s society. 49 Tanner Street, London SE1 3PL 2pm, 6pm, 8.30pm

Written by Fermín Cabal

Collide is a London-based theatre company made of emerging artists. We are fuelled by our need to create theatre for an audience who is willing to think differently. We love exploring non-theatrical spaces and bold texts that question who we are as human beings and how we choose to lead our lives. Collide’s debut production was a site-specific performance of Sarah Kane’s 4.48 Psychosis in the Crypt under St Pancras Church in July 2015. Our second production was Heiner Muller’s Hamletmachine in an unused garage in London Bridge in July 2016.

What the critics have said about our previous projects:

“There is no benchmark I can offer, no relevant experience to relate it to, but in terms of pure stagecraft it is an excellent envisioning of a very difficult play, and an experience worth undertaking, even if only because it is different from anything else out there.”
A Younger Theatre

★★★★★ “I can’t really put into words everything that I felt as I climbed out of that Crypt, but I felt changed. Bravo.” Performance Reviewed

★★★★★ “An incredibly powerful production which rises to Kane’s challenge.”

★★★★ “A really gripping production… Director Emily Louizou both asks for and gets a huge amount from her cast." LondonTheatre1

★★★★ “The attention to detail is staggering, testament to Louizou’s magisterial direction; the staging appeals to almost every sense. It is nothing if not a powerful piece of theatre, and one, whilst a challenge to stomach, that is entirely deserving of the upmost praise and reverence."
