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.

Abstract

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.
El propósito de este trabajo es presentar un análisis de la obra teatral La Audiencia de los confines. Primer ensayo sobre la memoria (estrenada y publicada en el año 2013) de la dramaturga salvadoreña Jorgelina Cerritos. Como el subtítulo señala, es la primera obra de una serie, precisamente una trilogía, cuyo eje temático es la recuperación de la memoria tanto histórica como íntima e individual. En este primer ensayo, la autora pone en escena la Historia, la Memoria y la Verdad, cuya articulación parece ser el camino necesario para la construcción de un espacio renovado de convivencia y sociabilidad. De ese modo, la recuperación de la memoria adquiere un sentido ético, como afirma Paul Ricoeur, cuya reflexión acerca de la narración, la historia y la memoria representa el marco teórico de este trabajo. Por otro lado, el análisis se lleva a cabo teniendo en cuenta que el drama tiene un destino teatral: se investiga tanto el texto escrito, con sus diálogos y acotaciones, como su puesta en escena. La fractura y la continuidad entre la dramaturgia y la representación teatral determinan un cambio radical de la recepción. Se examina la experiencia estética del lector y del público, considerándola como un proceso dinámico.
