♣ Minerva García @ Higways in Santa Monica, California

Once upon a very terrible time, a Woman coped with the slaughter of her friends and family by turning herself into a Hen…

That’s the premise of Creature / Creations (A Political Fable about Responsibility and Delusion in Oppressive Times), a one-woman show written in 1981 by Argentinean writer EUGENIO GRIFFERO.

The expressionistic fable, featuring MINERVA GARCÍA and directed by ABRAHAM CELAYA, recounts the tale of a Woman whose whole world has been turned upside down. Family and friends are all dead in wars. But as she examines her life, she comes to the shocking realization that she has been a “collaborator” in the terror and violence that engulfed her. It was easier for her to look the other way, deluding herself with fantasies and distractions in order to enjoy her privileged status, the middle of the road… And we all know that when a chicken goes on the middle of the road…!

Creature / Creations is part of a group of 21 short plays written in Argentina in 1981 for the first cycle of Teatro Abierto (Open Theatre) in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Also known as Theatre Under Vigilance, Teatro Abierto was a cultural reaction by the theatre community against the military dictatorship that ruled Argentina from 1970 through 1983.
