In The Arrogance of the Stone, García Sathicq starts from a symbolist scenic matrix (theater as a symbol, metaphysical enunciation of the universe) from an “abstract space” whose representations are mutating, to give voice to the displaced and excluded, the poor, the silenced , the invisible ones, the “ghosts”, “the nobody”, the “orphans” expelled from the city, the “thrown into nothingness”, those who are the “mud” that covered the cement. Dystopian drama of reaction against neoliberalism and its consequences, construction of an absolutely unsatisfactory image of civilization, thus combining, in a very personal way, symbolism and the social, poetic and political perspective, against / against exclusion. Poetry and social denunciation, united by an ethics of otherness (E. Lévinas) and the revelation of Rodolfo Kusch’s “deep America”.
In The Skies Above, the story of Nigel, a fledgling 50-year-old writer, focuses on one of the evils that are at the root of social dystopia: fear, fears. In times of quarantine, Nigel’s “journey” is a phenomenology of others, of the pain and wonder of others, and at the same time itself, culminating in a liberating and creative transformation. The heavens above is an educational drama (theatrical version of the Bildungsroman) embodied by an adult woman who undertakes the first steps of a new life, the construction of an emerging and future worldview, of self-assertion.
