RESURGENCE OF "EL HERALDO DE TAMPICO"
During the 5º Teatro para el Fin del Mundo Festival, 'False reconstructions' (2016), the Stultifera Navis made the resurgence of what was once the most important newspaper in northeastern Mexico: 'El Heraldo de Tampico'.
35 years after its closure, the resurgence of three days was an exercise in memory and collective fictionalization. The newspaper object served as a magnet of memories evoked by those who had worked at its headquarters or who had been its readers.
Activity that belongs to the cycle Hauntologies. A Hauntology is a spectral event. It is the appearance of a ghost, not as repetition or recreation of the past, but as the staging of a presence that challenges the living in the present. It is a historical event; it is also a theatrical experience.
