PONTORIERO, Andrea. Vida líquida, teatro y narración en las propuestas escénicas de Mariano Pensotti. Cuad. Cent. Estud. Diseñ. Comun., Ensayos [online]. 2014, n.50, pp.15-24. ISSN 1853-3523.

Zygmunt Bauman defines "the liquid modern society" as the one in which "the lives of its members change before acting forms habits are strengthened [...] Liquid Life as liquid modern society, can not maintain its shape or direction "(Bauman: 9) In this essay we will work on the staging of Past is a grotesque animal by Mariano Pensotti, premiered at the Sarmiento Theater in February 2010. The interest of this work lies in the director's intention in building a storytelling in the way of the "world novels" or the sweeping narratives of the nineteenth century, where a unleashed fiction is contained by a precise temporal and historical context" but using minimum scenic resources": the play is performed by only four actors. Locked in a rotating disc that moves permanently themselves undertake the heroic task of narrating and representing the multiplicity of stories, bringing to life dozens of characters and situations" (Pensotti, 2011). The work will attempt to make a cross between the various interactions, scenic devices that combine to assemble a proposal that tries to work the concept of narrative in a theatrical performing crosses between reality, the everyday, the recent historical context, all in a constant discourse of the temporal axis in which present is diluted, it escapes and becomes liquid, impossible to organize and classify into a rigid structure.
