Abstract

As a Director of the Mapuche Theatre Group called “El Katango”, which was born in the context of the Self-affirmation Campaign known as “Wefkvletuyiñ-We are rising”, the playwright Miriam Álvarez has been creating a space of active visibility for the representation of Mapuche’s silenced history. The play Pewma – Dream (2007) reactivates the memory of the genocide by means of a diachronic perspective. In the oneiric boundaries of the incorporeal being, the dream, both in its aesthetic shape as well as in its semantic function, becomes a powerful instrument which is able to put on stage the State’s violence.
