The last seagull
Chilean actress and director Tita Lacobelli and Belgian-Russian puppeteer Natacha Belova met in Santiago de Chile in 2012 as part of the Festival La Rebelión de los Muñecos. And it was in 2015, following a research laboratory on contemporary puppet theatre, that they decided to create Tchaïka together, the company's first show, conceived between Buenos Aires, Santiago de Chile and Brussels.
Freely inspired by Anton Chekhov's The Seagull, Tchaika, written for an actress and a puppet, features an actress who has to bid farewell to the theatre during a final performance of the play. We can guess that she has had a 'fine' career and that leaving the stage is a tragedy... but her memory betrays her, making her waver cruelly between Chekhov's work and her truncated memories: the actress she once was, her son, a lover... Like the characters in The Seagull, she too will have to choose: continue or give up.

Tchaïka was presented to the public in 2018 and has won numerous awards: Best Show and Best Actress (Círculo de Críticos de Arte de Chile), Audience Award for Best Direction (Premios Clap), Best One-Man Show and the Maeterlinck Critics' Prize in Belgium.
