Mariano Pensotti


The author and director Mariano Pensotti is originally based in Buenos Aires. Yet his group Grupo Marea, which he co-founded together with stage designer Mariana Tirantte and musician Diego Vainer, travels the world for performances all over the globe. They have performed at places such as Kunstenfestivaldesarts (Brussels), Theaterformen (Hannover), Tempo Festival (Rio de Janeiro), Rotterdamse Schouwburg, and Redcat (Los Angeles). In addition to productions for the stage, he also develops locally specific pieces in public spaces. His works are often inspired by cinematic composition strategies and always carry the imprint of his collaboration with the involved actors. Within the past ten years, he has developed more than 15 productions. HAU Hebbel am Ufer recently presented: “Cineastes / Filmemacher” (2013) and “Cuando vuelva a casa voy a ser otro / Wenn ich zurückkomme, bin ich ein Anderer” (2015). Her commissioned piece “Arde brillante en los bosques de la noche / Loderndes Leuchten in den Wäldern der Nacht” is Pensotti’s first premiere at HAU Hebbel am Ufer.
