The Fundación Teatro Nacional Sucre presents an interdisciplinary program commemorating the bicentennial of the Battle of Pichincha, under the general direction of Josie Casares, with the participation of 150 musicians, singers and dancers, the dramas of Aristides Vargas and the music of Orgiovier. .
“1822: War That Doesn’t End” evokes historical events that began in 1809, the revolutionary process began in Quito, and ended in 1822 with the Battle of Pichincha. Written for song and recitation, this essay uses poetry to tell our stories from a human perspective. That community participated in the pursuit of freedom, justice, and the common good as a historical event.
The event is a built-in mix of music, text, movement, lighting and imagery projected through mapping, using the Plaza de San Francisco as a real and simultaneously imaginative setting. La Cantata lets Quito’s street characters, together with that leading voice, ignore the essential role as women.
