Timbre 4

Timbre 4: Tercer Cuerpo (Third Wing)


“A wrenching, darkly hilarious look at deception and solitude.” —The Miami Herald

Director Claudio Tolcachir launched his internationally celebrated company—named after the buzzer on his apartment door—by converting his Buenos Aires residence into a compact, nearly claustrophobic theater. Tercer Cuerpo was developed within these confines, and Tolcachir's extraordinary ensemble of actors exact a heartbreaking poignancy in this nuanced and often hilarious dramedy set in a cramped and outmoded office. Three employees struggle with their mundane routines and a mounting desire for love, or meaning, or something to quell the fear that their lives are becoming obsolete. Time and space cleverly collapse as their spouses and children appear, and the office morphs into a bar, a doctor's office and a young couple’s apartment—sometimes all at once.

In Spanish with English surtitles.
