Mariano Pensotti: Sometimes I think, I can see you

Argentina

"The fine balance between comedy and tragedy."
—British Theatre Guide

Innovative theater director Mariano Pensotti’s sly urban intervention Sometimes I think, I can see you unleashes multiple writers on a public space where they author fictions on the fly—using audience members and passersby as fodder for their narratives. Each writer is positioned at a different location within a bustling public space, like literary surveillance cameras, typing observations on laptops that are simultaneously projected for all to see. Formed by chance events, the “play” evolves spontaneously as unsuspecting “actors” are swept into Pensotti's ingeniously voyeuristic scenario that pushes the boundaries of theater to create a startling and amusing mix of art and life.
