Mar Teatro de los Andes   Bolivia, Theatre   MAR, created by the Bolivians of the Teatro de Los Andes (welcomed at the Festival de Liège a few years ago, with the wonderful EN UN SOL AMARILLO, is inspired by the Pacific war, Chile’s conflict with Peru and Bolivia between 1879 and1884, during which Bolivia lost its province of Litoral, which formed its only access to the sea. MAR tells a humorous and poetical story of a sister and two brothers (Juana, Miguel and Secundo) who fulfil the last wish of their dying mother by taking her to see the sea. She asks them to fasten her to one of the doors of their family home, and once they reach the coast, to abandon her on the ocean waves. The children respond to her request, crossing the desert in a journey lasting many days. Along the way, they knock on the door, curious to know who is behind it. It opens mysteriously, and various characters appear who each in their own way speak of this terrible thing: the loss of the sea.  A way of talking about what is no longer there, what can no longer be asked, a final, inherited absence...
