“He said, ‘The day will come when they don’t cut our heads off in front of people.’ And I asked him, ‘Why?’ And he said, ‘Because we’ll cut them off ourselves.’”

A lecturer in Chile.
A study group in the USA.
A guard in the desert.
A hangman in Mexico.
A woman who won’t stop dancing in Peru. 

Pablo Manzi’s darkly comic odyssey across the Americas explores whether violence brings us closer together and what it takes to make a community. 

Developed on a residency at the Royal Court, A Fight Against…marks the English language debut of one of Chile’s most significant new voices. Royal Court Associate (International) Sam Pritchard directs. 

The development of A Fight Against… was supported by the British Council.
Teatro a Mil Foundation is a project partner.
