Ohlasy diváku na hru Buenos Aires, vystupte!


"La obra "Buenos Aires, vystupte" del grupo Buenos Aires Tango me ha emocionado profundamente. En muy contadas ocasiones he tenido el placer de ver este grado de afecto, de profundidad y de autenticidad con los artistas de otra nacionalidad  que explican  las raíces y la personalidad del alma argentina.  Esto es, un país que se ha formado tradicionalmente con la inmigración de todo el mundo, principalmente de los más diversos rincones de Europa, y que ha representado para los millones de personas que lo eligieron como su nueva patria un refugio y una esperanza.

"Buenos Aires, vystupte" traduce con música y danza ese maravilloso espíritu argentino. Su calidad es tal que no necesita de las palabras para que su profundo mensaje llegue al público checo. Agradezco profundamente a la compañía la oportunidad inigualable que nos ha brindado para mostrar a través de su maravillosa interpretación del tango como música y como  danza  las razones que han llevado a millones de personas ha elegir a la Argentina como su nueva patria y les deseo todo el éxito que la calidad de su obra merece."

Ministro Rubén Vallejo, Embajada Argentina en Praga, Noviembre de 2013

"Ein fantasievoller und poetischer Abend voller wunderschöner Musik und tollen Tänzern. "Endstation Buenos Aires" nimmt Sie mit auf eine Reise durch die Zeit und Kontinente und zeigt dabei die Bandbreite menschlicher Schicksale und Emotionen. Absolut empfehlenswert, diese Show sollte man nicht verpassen!"

Darkness. Pitch black. The motion of the sea wobbles a group of travelers towards an unknown destination. They gaze into the distant future while moving slowly towards the unknown that by the end of their journey will reveal itself. The little the baggage they carry, the more visible is the pain, suffering, despair, or bitterness that accompanies them while moving away from their difficult past.

The play by Mariana Arzumanova, shows the spectator, in flashbacks, the history of several european cities during the course of the first half of the 20th century. We all know the terrible facts on the events that the World Wars have brought to our continent, but Arzumanova shows these through stories of the common people. The scenes are made comprehensive and emotionally challenging for the audience at the same time, for we may through these personable and touching events, fully understand the impact of the history on the personal drama that our ancestors have lived through.

From frivolous scenes that show us an Italian beachside where two young lovers are flirting and playing with the water, fully unaware of what the future will bring, we travel to the city of Naples of the year 1900 where the typical Italian way is shown and the dream of Argentina being the new homeland is very much alive. Then we travel to Spain where we witness two young lovers wrapped in bandanas emptying an entire house, referring to the difficult situation that people were living in, the unrests, poverty and uprise of organized crime. In Paris we listen to the French chanson that unlocks the painful losses of loved ones in the trench wars. ln Warsaw we witness how organized marriages in appearance offered bright futures, at the cost of total loss of independence and in Russia we celebrate a lonely Christmas with a mixed couple and prepare for the premise of the Holocaust.
Prague, 1940, a random theatre with little audience. A beautiful artist on stage is stripped of her clothes while preparing to be taken away. The sound of trains. Deportations. The audience of the theatre turns around and they all show that they are wearing yellow badges. As spectators we can't turn around, we can't look away. We are forced to look inside ourselves now. The fourth wall is shattered without even using one word and we become one with the protagonists' suffering.

Mariana has put together eleven actors who in fourteen scenes show us an hour of history. The drama unfolds through plot events that make direct and indirect reference to the grand History, but Buenos Aires: final destination is not simply a history lesson. It mirrors our own search for 'the better' and our eager to understand life itself. Through our collective memory of the past, we may strive for meaningful and different futures. It offers the conclusion that however difficult the lives of many before us have been, there is hope for a better world, for even they who had experienced the misery believed in something new and better. In the end we are all adventurers, always traveling, seeking to improve, while moving away and learning from our past, onwards, to our final destination.
