Jericó Montilla directs Rota in the Sala Rajatabla

Based on two stories by the feminist writer Simone de Beauvoir

The Rajatabla Foundation and Teatro Ceres present their most recent creation: Rota, inspired by The Broken Woman and Monologue by Simone de Beauvoir, under the direction of Jericó Montilla.

Rota is a poetic way of reinterpreting this essential publication by the renowned French writer, philosopher, professor and feminist, who was born in Paris in 1908 and died in the same city in 1986.

“It is a free version that we made of the book by Beauvoir, who carried the flag of feminism in the contemporary era and rose with a number of philosophical reflections about the role of women in society and in personal spheres. This book, which has three dimensions of what a woman is in her marriage, what society has imposed on us as a model of a married woman, makes three reflections with three stories about different times. One, the Monologue, where there is a mother between 40 and 50 years old who suffers the loss of a daughter, which leaves her psychologically disturbed, and due to such behavior she loses parental authority over her youngest son, which leads her to fight to cope with the pain. The other is The Broken Woman, about a wife who decided to dedicate her life to marriage and parenting and is deceived by her husband. The story is about how she goes through that pain through letters that she writes to herself to try to live with that indignation,” explains Montilla.

María Alejandra Telli, Andrea Pedrón, Yendy Vegas, Katherine León, María de Los Ángeles Aponte, Keili Veloz and Margareth Sosa perform in the production. The set design is by Niky García and images by Valentina Cabrera.

Jericó has been an actress, director and theater producer for more than two decades and in 2020 she starred in the film by brothers Luis and Andrés Rodríguez, Un flash interior, which earned them a nomination for best film at the Moscow Film Festival.

“The work is based on the physical work of the actresses, and here it takes on greater importance with regard to the dramaturgy of the staging that occurs in a bifrontal manner, since the audience is in different spaces of the room, with different points of view".

The presentations will be at the Sala Rajatabla, on México Avenue, on June 7, 8 and 9, with performances Friday and Saturday at 6 pm and Sunday at 5 pm. Tickets are purchased at the theater box office at a cost of $5. mon
