EL ODIO DE UN PAIS/ The Hate of a Country by Raquel Almazan

Directed by Gineiris Garcia

Original Sound and Music by Sinuhe Padilla Isunza

EL ODIO DE UN PAIS/ The Hate of a Country, explores the conditions of women through the dramatization of violence contrasted with the actions of healing and solidarity within female communities. Rape culture becomes personal Costa Rican mythology: A missing arm in the sugar cane fields, a mother and daughter climb the mango tree of dangerous memories in the jungle, imprisoned men swear their innocence to the Crimen de Colima. An autobiographical and biographical series of scenes that explore the mainstream history of Costa Rica from the perspective of family lineage. This play challenges the male and colonial gaze by revealing the destructive impact of oppression on the individual, positioned as a metonym for Costa Rica itself.
