World Premiere

While Ingrid Betancourt, a former senator and anti-corruption activist, was running for President of Colombia in 2002, she was kidnapped by the Marxist revolutionary terrorist organization the FARC. This story is a theatrical re-imagining of those events. The Woman narrates this story, through “intrusive memory,” a symptom of PTSD. She grapples with an ever-present series of moments in her life, as the play shifts in time and place via fragmentary scenes in a variety of locations. Catherine Filloux is a theater artist who has been writing about human rights and social justice for over twenty years. She was honored with the 2015 Planet Activist Award and 2017 Otto René Castillo Award for Political Theatre for her long career as an activist artist in the theater community.
