Starting this year and for two more years, the Teatro del Lago Foundation is working on a great and challenging project: the staging of the children’s opera “Pinocchio”. A work inspired by the history of this classic, in a local adaptation based on the traditions of southern Chile.

What you will be able to see in this “IMAGINE” exhibition are the theatres inspired by Pinocchio, built by students from 30 schools in the Metropolitan, O’Higgins, Maule, Araucanía, Los Ríos and Los Lagos regions, which are part of the first period of this project.

Each school received a story with the story of Pinocchio based on the opera along with a theatre kit per course. The kit included a program of online capsules that included: Construction of the theatre dictated by Museo Taller; theatrical and costume design by La Llave Maestra and lighting design with Claudia Yolin, added to a recording of the story by Paz Corral. All this material was worked on with the teachers and students during 2021 to finish with the design of a “Teatrino” per course with its proposals for curtains and costume design for the opera, which are part of this exhibition and will serve as inspiration for the integral design of the opera in 2022 and 2023.

The sample will be accompanied by the projection of a documentary that shows the process carried out with the schools and the community during this year.

This project has the support of Isa Intervial.
