La luz de Croisset (Croisset's light) (1991)
Unpublished and unpremiered play.
Gustave Flaubert writes in his house in Croisset. His candlelight serves as a lighthouse for approaching ships. Literature as a tool, as an instrument of salvation. Gustave Flaubert reviews his days, unfolds silenced secrets, fucks like a bear and openly declares his foot fetish.
My first play - yes: deformed and exaggerated.
Work produced after the Workshop given from October 22nd to November 23rd, 2014 at the MAMBA (Buenos Aires’s Museum of Modern Art) – inside the installation Habitat Sequences by Gabriel Lester.REQUEST TEXT

From the time of Homer everything is trip (The Odyssey) or everything is war (The Iliad) - nothing seems to be able to escape this strict rule. Since then we have contemplated life as a journey or as a war. Alternately or merged the way of our existence is built on these two models.
Archipelago is a new journey built on the footsteps of the one who created Franz Schubert on the poems of Wilhelm Müller: Winterreise. Here - as there - a walker leaves his house and starts walking. The forest gives shelter and wonderful beings are presented with the will to advise the ideal way or to prevent the dangers that lurk, of course, in the dark. The walker would like to leave behind a love. That's why he walks. His conscience, split, warns him to keep going, that there, at the front, that unrequited love will stop tearing him apart. And the traveler advances towards the night, the darkness and also toward hope.
We invite you, then, joyful to this extraordinary trip.
