The theatre festival Muestra Escénica Iberoamericana (MEI) has programmed 'Nadie lee fuego mientras todo se está quemando', (Nobody reads fire while everything is burning) by the Chilean theatre company Teatro Niño Proletario.

A mother and her son are homeless and live on the streets of a society they do not wish to belong to. They decide to confront the situation by performing a poetic act as the last gesture to shed light on a country that lives in darkness.

This play revisits the 2005 production 'Hambre' (Hunger), the company's first creation. It is also inspired by the novel 'Los vigilantes', by Diamela Eltit, a winner of the Chilean National Prize for Literature in 2018.

Likewise, it is inspired by the poetry book 'Bonzo', by Maximiliano Andrade, a young Chilean poet and outstanding illustrator, who also illustrated his book.
