Comida alemana

Cristian Plana


Der deutsche Mittagstisch is a short, satirical and brutal piece, in which the Austrian writer Thomas Bernhard expresses his distaste for German society and its implacable fascist ideology. In his adaptation, Cristián Plana placed the action of the play in Chile. In a narrow, white basement a group of six youngsters rehearses songs by Schubert, in preparation for the arrival of the “illustrious” guests. Energetically, Plana lets the caustic discourse of Thomas Bernhard reverberate throughout the local context for over fifty minutes, with a surprising and depressing outcome.
