Aliens from outer space in witty conversation with xenophobic human
What is an enemy? How do you create one? And how do enemies distinguish themselves from friends? Tú Amarás (You Love) by the young Chilean theatre company Teatro Bonobo is simply a mirror. It is an intelligent and humorous life lesson in anthropology, misunderstanding humans, self-reflection and xenophobia. And aliens from outer space are the instructors. Once these Amenites, as they are known, have settled on our planet, they become the hot topic for a group of Chilean doctors preparing an international conference on prejudice. Why is it that the inhabitants of planet earth immediately project their notions of fear, love and hate on these newcomers? Like in their last show, entitled Donde Viven los Barbaros (Where the Barbarians Live), the theatre makers take timely universal themes and cast them in a refreshing Latin American light. Tú Amarás is packed with witty, jarring dialogue that unveils everyday absurdity.

“With a remarkable humoristic quality and very intelligent dialog, the work stands out among other pieces that delve into this subject. Welcome is its sense of humor, so close to the language confusion games, of which Monty Python were the founding fathers.”

- El Monstrador
