In his latest piece, internationally renowned Argentinian author and director Mariano Pensotti combines stories about people caught up in their past.

What happens when we suddenly get torn out of the here and now and have to face something that happened long ago? “Cuando vuelva a casa voy a ser otro” is a piece by the superb story-teller Mariano Pensotti about people haunted by the past, forced to realise that they have become someone different over the course of time.

The whole thing is based on a true story: an Argentinian revolutionary who buried incriminating objects at the end of the 70s. After the end of the military dictatorship, he can no longer find them, and they only reappear unexpectedly years later, confronting the one-time revolutionary with his past. Against this backdrop, Pensotti connects three illustrious fictive biographies – a former theatre director tries to restage his only successful play, a political campaign adds a twist to the life of a musician and an unsuccessful politician reinvents himself. To stage these identity crises Pensotti deploys narrative techniques of cinema alongside an unusual stage structure.

The Argentinian staged Johannes Schrettle’s short play “no one’s colleague” at steirischer herbst in 2008, in 2010 he premiered the “Encyclopedia of unlived life”. An insider’s tip back then, today he is internationally sought after. This year, for the first time, he brings his own new play to Graz with the actors of the Grupo Marea.
