"An homage to coal incentive for the memory and history of our country... artistically and socially delicate and feelingful." Diario La Nación, Chile

Internationally acclaimed Chilean puppet theatre company Silencio Blanco performs their deeply moving, hauntingly gorgeous puppet play about a Chilean miner and his wife. For 60 spellbinding minutes, watch as Silencio Blanco’s perfectly crafted, faceless white papier mâché puppets wordlessly navigate their tiny, simply and beautifully rendered world. Chiflón, based on a novella and developed through the company’s residency in the Chilean mining village of Lota, is a modern tragedy: a fable about hope, loss, and love, set in a contemporary context of poverty, risk, and exploitation.
