The Losers (2015) – Grupo Desvio

What came first, the chicken or the egg? “The Failures,” tells the story of four friends who meet after an apparent tragedy. Rekindling their memories, they make a journey to what really matters. Failure: isn’t it just a matter of point of view? In addition to the text, digital projections and live music performed by the actors help provoke discussions between multiple times and spaces. What is the role of man in this story?

The Failures is the latest play by Grupo Desvio, directed by Rodrigo Fischer. It addresses the male universe in a poetic and unusual way. Four friends pass by personal dreams and memories confronting their existential dilemmas, touching on universal themes like childhood, friendship, death, time and memory. The failure, mentioned in the title, sounds like a provocation that is reframed by each new fragmented point of view, mixing our missteps with poetry of shared affections and desires facing the transience of life.
