Description

A couple and three office workers are the protagonists of two stories that entwine from a choral work in which discourses come together. So, the Third Body moves between encounters and misunderstandings, the camera’s close-ups guide us through complicity and quick glances, building up the tension.

A story that combines fears, desires, frustrations, lives that are striving to become. The play, written and directed by Claudio Tolcachir, shows us how three individuals survive in an office: Hector (José Marcos Paz), Sandra (Lorena Aurifonti) and Moni (Laura Lertora). Their dialogues are intertwined with those of a couple: Sofia (Magdalena Grondona) and Manuel (Hernán Grinstein). Their stories, seemingly parallel, intersect at a given moment, and this convergence brings to light the characters’ painful reality.

Among a play overlapping spaces and times, words strip the characters subtly, at first, and then brutally. Their intimacy, loneliness, lies, troubles, and their need for love.

This "absurd attempt", as the author has called it, is just that: an attempt to get through each day and give their lives meaning.

The award-winning play has been staged in festivals around the world. Staging is by Gonzalo Córdoba Estévez, and lighting by Omar Possemato.
