Historia de amor (últimos capítulos) (2002)

This "radiophonic" play explores the relationship between three people, their desires, sense of loss and isolation. The play unravels as a journey of a man passing through a city, a journey of thoughts and words passing inside the man's head, the passing of a story that ebbs and flows, of history repeating itself, of sense lost and recovered. Voices, in their continuous expression and circulation, turn into the face of history and story, their sound turned fractured gestures. And both faces and gestures get shaped in the solitude of those who listen. The production is configured as a digital voice soundscape with a one-shot, aerial-view video of a billiard table in play (featuring international champion billiard player Jaime Bedoya). Streams of sound, words and disembodied voices evoke repetitions and pulses between memory, affect and influence, murmuring softly of a broken long term love affair, of war, intrigue and exile.
