Puto Gallo Conquistador

piece for 6 performers

Through an imaginary collective Puto Gallo Conquistador questions Uruguay’s colonial process, in which the indigenous populations and their languages were extinct. In a history full of gaps and episodes that were not collectively solved, with versions that strive to give meaning to their peripheral and third world present, Tamara Cubas plays with history, filling its gaps, modifying and fictionalizing successes, colouring the precarity that the official history tells. The work looks for narratives from a non-occidental, decolonized subaltern point of view.
