PASSION AND DOWNFALL OF TANGO IN 'COMO UN PUÑAL EN LAS CARNES'

Next 12 March at 20:00 hours, at the Auditorium of the UA the play 'Como un puñal en las carnes', by the Argentinian comapany Equipo
Teatro Llanura. Performed by actor Jorge Ricci and directed by Alfredo Catania, this original monologue by playwright Mauricio Kartún
is presented with the melodramatic title of a tango.

The play tells the story of a mature and responsible man who lives in the stillness of routine, until one day he falls passionately in
love with his maid, Sandrita. Giving up everything, he leaves with her to a wintry Mar del Plata where he will find passion and downfall.
Nothing will be the same when he returns. The play, divided in three parts (the initial doubt, the euphoria and the final catastrophe),
combines the best of the Argentinian 'grotesque' and the end of a tango.

Mauricio Kartun is one of the best playwrights of today's Argentinian theatre, awarded in 2001 with the National Award for Theatre.
In turn, Alfredo Catania is an Argentinian-Costa Rican director of distinguished trajectory through all Latin America, who has won
on several occasions the National Award for Theatre in Costa Rica for actor, director and playwright.

Jorge Ricci is a renowned theatre man in the Spanish American field who has worked as an actor, an author and a director. He has been
directing and writing for thirty years for the Equipo Teatro Llanura in Santa Fe. This company is famous for its typical theatre
and has travelled around several countries, taking part in many European and Latin American international festivals.
