Sept. 15, 2013, 3 p.m.


Boom Arts presents a reading of the contemporary Chilean play, Villa by Guillermo Calderón, translated into English, followed by a panel discussion about the legacy of Pinochet among a new generation of Chilean artists.

At 3 p.m., there will be a staged reading of the play, in English, featuring three of Portland's most powerful young actresses — Cristi Miles, Dana Millican (Ithaka) and Rebecca Lingafelter — and directed by New York–based director Tracy Cameron Francis.

At 4 p.m., the playwright will join via Skype a panel discussion with Mariela Szwarcberg of Reed College and Amalia Gladhart of the University of Oregon about how a new generation of Chileans are making sense of their shared past in a post-Pinochet society. Ruth Wikler-Luker of Boom Arts will moderate.
