Play Invites Viewer to Embrace More Inclusiveness in Society

By Lilia Trápaga

Have you ever had mixed feelings about someone or something? Do you wonder to what an extent your thoughts are really yours or are imposed by others around us? Are there any parts of our physique that we find difficult to accept? These, among other questions are posed in Contrapunto, the sixteenth production of the SMA Theater Group El Caldero (The Cauldron).

As a part of a connected and ever-changing cosmic system, every human being yearns for unity. The removal of our sense of separation can be achieved by discovering the wholeness within ourselves and others. In these times of social and political polarization, the reconciliation of the opposites­—I and we; love and hate; war and peace; good and evil—plays a very important role since it will lead us to the acceptance of the fascinating prisms that each one of us are.

The integration of the apparent contradictions of human nature has been a constant concern for the arts. Contrapunto is an invitation to embrace our totality and to be more inclusive. It consists of a dramatized and choreographed collection of poems and literary excerpts where sensuality and humor permeate. The show is in Spanish. However, there will be translations into English for some of the poems on the playbill. The cast includes: Jesús Ibarra, Marcia Armenta, Griselda Robles, Edna Orenday, Carlos Martínez Villela, Laura España, José Alberto Romero Romano, Marisa Ávalos, Eduardo Mora, Cristina Alfaro, and Francisca Salcedo. Gerardo Charreton executes lights and sound. Script and direction is by Lilia Trápaga.
