22/23 Season

Rescoldos de paz y violencia  -  Trilogía sobre la violencia y el proceso de paz en el País Vasco

La mirada del otro

María San Miguel y Chani Martín
Direction: Chani Martín
Production: Proyecto 43-2
Approximate length: 1h y 10 min


In line with the commitment acquired last season to address the most recent events in Spanish history, La Abadía presents Rescoldos de paz, a documentary theatre trilogy on the violence and peace process in the Basque Country.

Proyecto 43-2, the group heading the project, have pursued two lines of work: an artistic dimension, based on investigation and the search for a unique stage language through a rigorous documentary process; and a didactic dimension, consisting of various activities aimed at young people, adults and special groups, in which theatre is employed as a means of transforming the conflict and instigating social change, based on the de-legitimisation of violence and the fostering of a culture of peace.

In the company’s shows, the emphasis is placed essentially on words and a desire to encounter others’ standpoints through a degree of emotional identification that transcends political issues and social contexts, giving rise to new approaches that go beyond social prejudices and constructions.

La mirada del otro (“The Perspective of Others”) arose from the company’s ongoing research and pursuit of its poetic mission, an independent production whose delicate appeal and effectiveness have helped to establish the company.

This work has toured 70 theatres, featuring more than 100 performances. The company has also travelled to Colombia, where it completed a successful tour to coincide with the peace process in this Latin American country.


A room in a prison.

Three people: the mediator, the victim and the person responsible for the crime.

Their eyes.

The eyes of others.

Do we have more things in common with others than things that separate us?

At the end of 2010, a letter emerged at the Prison of Nanclares de la Oca (Álava) in which a group of ETA dissidents expressed their willingness to meet the families of their victims. La mirada del otro brings the story of this encounter to the stage. From its preparatory stages to the moment the encounter itself took place.
