The same today as yesterday


Santi Fondevila

The relationship between Francisco Pizarro’s conquest and exploitation by multinationals in the lands of indigenous peoples in South America may seem a distant one, but it has a common element that becomes clear in the first scene of this magnificent creative play by the Titzina company: gold and greed go together. Evoking the Spanish conquest as a backdrop and the paradox that societies have not changed very much, Titzina tell a contemporary story about a cultural confrontation between two worlds through the relationship between a big company and the mayor of an indigenous community.
