Tú amarás (You Shall Love) by the young Chilean theatre company Bonobo holds up an intelligent mirror to us. What is an enemy? How do we create one? And how do we connect to others? These are the burning questions that a group of Chilean doctors ask themselves while preparing an international conference on prejudices in medicine. It is a relevant subject that becomes increasingly complex due to the recent arrival of the extra-terrestrial community of the Amenites. This arrival offers the perfect opportunity to reflect on hate, love and the implicit violence against the ‘other’. Relying on humour and irony, the show is full of incisive, uncomfortable dialogues that lift the veil on the absurdity of everyday life. Get ready for an intelligent and amusing life lesson about humankind’s ignorance and xenophobia, set in a Latin American context.
