Abstract

Abstract:

The purpose of this work is to analyze Alfredo Castro's dramatic text Historia de la sangre, a complex work that explores the memory of trauma in the body and language. Based on the headlines of notorious crimes, this play depicts the story of violated bodies during the military dictatorship in Chile and in the process unveils different dimensions of memory. In Historia de la sangre, testimonies are recognized as part of the construction of a collective memory in which individual and collective biographies overlap. In addition, this dramatic work disassembles the nation's narrative about gender classifications and family roles.
