Performance Notes


By Liliana's Suárez Henao and Beatriz Pizano

Curated and produced by Aluna Theatre as part of Progress

Co-produced with the Freidel Collective

From Colombia's Avant-Garde theatre to Toronto's after-hours service industry, Liliana puts a face and a name to the refugee experience. Liliana weaves her experiences of forced displacement, arrival, and her journey as an artist in Canada, with the plays of controversial Colombian theatre-maker, and her director, Jose Manuel Freidel: an artist who fought against his society’s indifference toward justice. Freidel was assassinated a few blocks away from his beloved theatre at the age of 39.

“Leaving my country of origin meant making a complete stop in my life as a theatre artist. Creating as an actor had always been vital for my identity and development as a person and as a woman. And then there I was, in a new world, charged inside with memories and images and with no means to express them, as I had done so before in my life.” – Liliana

Presented in Spanish with English surtitles.
