Kimba Fá is the first modern production of black percussion featuring unconventional instruments to be staged in Peru. Glass bottles, bamboo canes, buckets, knives, mats and pipes come to life as musical instruments in the hands of Kimba Fá’s percussionists. They tell stories of Lima, our capital, transforming its everyday noises into sound through percussion and rhythm. The show is named Kimba Fá, two African terms that seek to epitomize the spirit of the performance, which is appropriate for all ages. “Quimba” stands for the rhythm, gait and grace of our people and “fá” represents the energy and decisiveness needed to reach the peak and culmination of a process. Kimba Fá is a show that combines foot-stomping and percussion, turning these elements into languages and codes that create a parody of daily life. It is a contemporary look at present-day Lima, a city shaped by indigenous, European, African and Asian migrations. The city and its popular characters are the stars of this story, infused as it is with the flavor, the quimba and the cultural joy of our black people, who through this production wordlessly demand acknowledgement of their contribution to Peruvian culture.

Juan Cristóbal, casi al llegar a Zapadores is a bio-drama born of research into the materials, documents and stories of two women with a number of things in common. One is 72, the other 68. They have both lived in the neighborhood of Recoleta for almost 40 years, barely 25 steps from each other. In addition to sharing secrets, tales and a neighborhood, they are the director’s grandmothers. They are charged with staging their stories with the help of two actors and a filmmaker. It’s a production that shuns conventional dramatic structure and works from the concept of a “living museum” (a place full of traces and vestiges, of details that illuminate private, everyday history) of the lives of two anonymous women and shows how fragments that fluctuate between the real and the fictional eventually shape a collective identity.

The play builds on an essay by Spaniard Juan Mayorga in which he reflects on the like-named treatise written by German philosopher, metaphysician and critic Immanuel Kant, who already in 1795 spoke of peace not as an impossible dream but as a real possibility. In a closed room, three dogs compete to obtain the coveted job of elite-squad counter-terrorism bomb-sniffer. Strength, sensitivity, logical deduction and even moral character come into play in this disquieting metaphor for present-day state policies.
