In this absurd and forceful play, two brothers, one weak, one strong, play out a primal scene of envy, cruelty and torture as the strong exerts his power and aggression over the weak. Here the absurd becomes a harrowing metaphor of the most pure and raw reality. First performed in , this is an early, yet startling brilliant, work by the internationally acclaimed Argentine playwright, Griselda Gambaro. At the centre of Los siameses are Lorenzo and Ignacio, twins who form the well-known archetypes of Cain and Abel.

The first thing we hear is the sound of his footsteps running down a corridor before he bursts onstage through a door, slamming and locking it behind him. Moreover, he taunts his brother from behind the door. When Ignacio eventually takes the beating meant for his brother, Lorenzo screens out this distressing violence which we hear but do not see, and calmly writes him a letter which he then slides under the door towards Ignacio. Ignacio is finally admitted to the room by Lorenzo but the sadism continues.

He wants Lorenzo to leave the house of his parents so that he can establish his own family there. Ignacio is arrested by these officers, and taken away. Lorenzo must either leave or accept this new couple. The rest of the play takes place around the prison where Ignacio is wrongfully held prisoner. Taylor, Diana.

Griselda Gambaro b. In El campo ; The Camp , , El desatino ; The Blunder , Los siameses ; The Siamese Twins , , and other works, Gambaro uses symbolic constructions to depict the real nature of human beings and of their relationships, to open "an imaginary space that, in turn, discovers, invents or anticipates new dimensions of reality. Gambaro, in all her works, is preoccupied with the absurdity of the human condition, the schizophrenic nature of man, and the exercise of power by men and women alike. Her theater and, to some degree, her novels are absurdist constructions with elements of the theater of cruelty and black humor. Gambaro herself has related it to the grotesco criollo , a parodic genre rooted in the distortion of the traditional bourgeois drama: that of the love triangle. Her characters are isolated, defeated, and devastated in a brutal, hostile world. Her mostly nonverbal language and violent physical images underline a dramatic vision of life and bestow a nightmarish and Kafkaesque quality to her plays.

Teatro: Las paredes / El desatino / Los siameses

Griselda Gambaro born July 24, is an Argentine writer, whose novels, plays, short stories, story tales, essays and novels for teenagers often concern the political violence in her home country that would develop into the Dirty War. One recurring theme is the desaparecidos and the attempts to recover their bodies and memorialize them. Her novel Ganarse la muerte was banned by the government because of the obvious political message. One cannot help wondering whether the first audiences for this play would have identified the menacing figures who appear in it with particular political or public faces. On one hand this play is an outcry and a prescient warning about this the misuse of authority and fearful acquiescence before it and on the other a picture of the exploitation, cruelty and even torture that even partners or siblings can inflict upon each other.
