“Aguirre is a hot tamale: passionate, at times very poetic, blunt and outspoken.” - Mondo Magazine
investigates Carmen Aguirre's remarkable life as an underground revolutionary in Chile. It's a story of terror, romance, fear and abandon that takes us from the dangerous mountain passes of Chile to the perilous roller coasters of Hollywood; from an ardent love affair with a TV star, to a passionate love for a revolutionary political movement that strove to free and change an entire nation.
Commissioned and developed by Toronto's Nightswimming,
Blue Box is written and performed by the fierce and funny Carmen Aguirre and directed by Nightswimming’s Artistic Director Brian Quirt. Production Design by Itai Erdal; Produced by Rupal Shah; Sound Design and Composition by Joelysa Pankanea.
