Diego talks ‘Privacidad’ to Contenido
Nov 2, 2017

Last month, Diego and Luis Gerardo talked to Contenido about Privacidad. I have translated the article (which you can read below) and also added the images acompanying the article in our gallery.

These two renowned actors will act alternately in the roles of the play Privacy, whose dramatic structure was originally devised by James Graham and Josie Rourke, which were inspired by the controversial case of Edward Snowden that revealed the massive espionage of the United States .

To direct the work in Mexico, the playwright Francisco Franco is the playwright who describes the staging as a documentary theater in constant adaptation, as well as a pretext to talk about “What is the future of our society that communicates through devices and exposes their personal data”, through a writer who has been abandoned by creativity and decides to look for inspiration in the network.

This work thought from the theater “gives you that feeling of living an experience related to your personal life“, describes for Content the protagonist of Rogue One and recently chosen by Woody Allen for his next film. “I know that metaphorically we always talk about that mirror that turns out to be the theater, here I saw it happen immediately” because the central theme of Privacy is to address the dual task of the Internet in real time with the public: as a bridge of communication and democratization, but also as a tool that has erased the boundaries between the public and privacy to become a weapon that can be used against us.

The play begins as something very playful, but it is becoming something that is not so fun, it becomes darker, more reflective and disturbing, says Luis Gerardo Méndez, star of the series Club de Cuervos and who will alternate with Diego Luna in the main character of Privacy. When you see her “you realize that you are going to enter a hole where we are going to confront you with everything you have put on social networks” and we are going to confront your public “I” and your private “I”.

Launching opinions on a “futuristic world” that some only imagined and that now others experience, not only consists of a handful of political speeches, but also in the construction of stories; therefore, Diego Luna and Luis Gerardo Méndez, under the direction of Francisco Franco, assume a reflective task on privacy in an interconnected Mexico.

The play, starring in the United States by actor Daniel Radcliffe, starts the season on October 5, 2017 at the Teatro de los Insurgentes in Mexico City with excellent production work to create a before and after in your conception of technological power , because that information that the government has through some agency is the same that a narco or someone who wants to hurt me can get, says for Content the protagonist of Nosotros los Nobles.
