    From the pen of one of Chile’s leading writers and directors comes Dragón, a piquant and somewhat dark play about a group of politically active artists. Guillermo Calderón has been writing and directing theatre for more than ten years, bringing to the stage plays such as Diciembre and Escuela, to resounding success. Already a guest at the Wiener Festwochen in 2009 and 2012, he now returns at a crucial moment in the social and political life of his country. In his latest creation, Calderón questions the arts and their position within ideological struggles. Using a particular sense of comedy, he addresses cultural appropriation, political engagement and ethical correctness. The Dragón Group meets up in a restaurant in Santiago de Chile, where they secretly plan their next installation, a commission for a major arts biennial. But the subject they’ve chosen is so ambitious that the new project threatens to be their downfall. The only way out is to create a work of art grounded in betrayal. Served by excellent acting, brimming with deliciously sinister humour and outspoken dialogue, Guillermo Calderón’s Dragón is brilliant theatre about (un)truth and (in)authenticity in today’s society.
