On December 4th, at 11.00 h, the Salón de Actos (Colegio Mayor of the UA) will host the representation Dossier Cachai, Aula Abierta de Filosofía y Ética, a pedagogical experience which, according to stage director Pepe de Jiménez, ¨deals with denouncing the structure behind the new neoliberal world order, a functioning which places economic criteria above ethic considerations, one in which mercantile profits are more important than people’s lives. The performance will be viewed by 250 secondary-school pupils from the province of Alicante.

The play, which opens with a presentation and ends with an open debate among participants -, is focused on ¨making a small contribution to uncover the fallacy of this new world order¨, states Jiménez. These ideas take shape on the stage by means of a story that begins in one of the most disadvantaged places in Latin America: the suburbs of Santiago de Chile, on the background of Pinochet’s coup d’état and the intricate scheming meant to overthrow the democratically elected government.

According to Jimenez’s explanations, ¨ the starting point of the play is a story about two orphans reborn from nothingness, who manage to survive for two years in the niche of a cemetery, hunted down by soldiers - something which actually happened, although the rest of the story is fictional.¨

The underlying message is, in Jimenez’s view, ¨the ontological and philosophical reflection on a number of issues, such as the significance of being human, how we exert our freedom, how we reinvent ourselves, making us go back to the age-old question: what is man?¨.
