Argentinean playwright, performer and director Claudio Tolcachir founded Timbre 4—at once a theatre, a school, a company and a collective workshop—inside his own small Buenos Aires apartment in the late ‘90s. Since then, this staggeringly successful member of the independent theatre scene has won every major Argentine theatre award and has traveled extensively to international festivals, including the Festival d’automne. Come to the Segal for an evening with the playwright, featuring a reading from the new Segal publication of Jean Graham-Jones’ translations of his oeuvre, including Tolcachir’s first original play, 2005’s La Omisión de la familia Coleman, co-translated with Elisa Legon. This improvisationally-built drama about a family circle in which violence gradually replaces speech has been a sold-out hit since its premiere, and no conversation about the vibrant Argentinian theatrical scene can be complete without it. With translators Jean Graham-Jones and Elisa Legon. Reading directed by Susana Tubert, Producing Executive Director of TeatroStageFest.
