Monologue by Deisy Preciche
By Sandra Ríos
The monologue La mujer loba aúlla a solas, starring Deisy Preciche, was recently presented at VC & Friends. Preciche adapted the original text of the stage play by Alejandro Licona, which tells of an actress’s rehearsal before her visit to the psychiatrist. It is a tragicomic story in which the actress represents a character who sought children as her audience when she was perfecting her career as a TV star, but she was also consumed as a social human being. The play develops as a “happening,” during which an artist does a painting of the actress and a musician sings songs. “For me it is a play made with much love. I have been doing cabaret for over 10 years—that is what identifies me—and I’ve doing Antiespectáculo for 15 years. This is something different, and for me it means putting together all the parts to build live theater on the scene where there is a production in which certain elements fit into a suitcase. But most important is that we make our stage on the floor where we walk. The staging is ephemeral. The advantage of doing a painting in the setting is that it is captured for whoever takes it. The ephemeral part remains in the head of each person, and I love it,” says actress Preciche. As an independent artist, she expands her scenic proposals to have more chances with theatrical language. YaYa Mendez Silva participated in the production and will soon have another function at the El Sindicato Cultural Center on July 27. Go for your tickets soon. Don’t miss this performance. You’ll have a great time.
