Under the Mountain's Grass

Viteri, Alexandra

A family comes together to celebrate life in a country on the verge of signing peace after 52 years of war. Or the trip journal of a paranoiac daughter that falls in love far away from home.
Under the mountain’s grass is the recollection of childhood memories from a mind that grew up in the midst of Mexican mythologies, American movies, Mao’s revolutionary ideas and Colombia’s inner conflict stories. Abroad, the younger daughter of a middle class family recounts the moments that shaped her imaginary. Both a physical trip and time travel where she questions the rise of collective paranoia and redefines her sexual identity.
The play was staged as part of the three months residency at Shanghai Theater Academy in December, 2016.
