The present work offers an analysis of the play La Audiencia de los confines. Primer ensayo sobre la memoria (staged and published in 2013) by Salvadorian playwright Jorgelina Cerritos. As the subtitle suggests, the play is the first part of a trilogy which focuses on the reclamation of historical as well as individual memory. In this first “attempt”, Cerritos stages History, Memory and Truth, whose articulation appears to be the necessary path for building a renewed space for cohabitation and sharing. Reclaiming memory thus acquires ethical implications, as argued by Paul Ricoeur, whose elaborations on history, memory and recognition provide the theoretical framework for this paper. Moreover, my analysis will engage with the theatrical dimension of the play, focusing on the written text, with its dialogues and stage directions, as well as on its staging. As the fractures and continuities between the text and its performance trigger a radical change in its reception, I will also analyze the reader and the audience’s aesthetic experience, considering it as a dynamic process.
