Viene nieve (Snow is coming) is a play with live drawing produced in 2008 in Buenos Aires, as a co-production between artists from Argentina and Colombia. It takes as its starting point the concept of the first fall, created by the historian Toynbee to designate the moment when a civilization fails to respond creatively to the challenge posed by its environment. The work narrates how the way in which the civilization faces its first stumble will define its survival, in the same way as it happens in the life of a person.
Viene nieve was part of the research on scenic drawing and the possibilities of dialogue between real-time animated digital drawing, bodies, and space. The director and playwright guided the staging process while writing the play, incorporating elements of biodrama. The actions of the three people on stage: the artist, the actress, and the musician, were worked together. The theme, which makes a parallel between the first great crisis of a person and that of a civilization, was developed from the work of each stage performer from their specific languages (acting, music and drawing).
Viene Nieve was premiered at the theater El Espión (2008 season), presented at the festivals "Buenos Aires Sala Abierta" (2008) and "Tecnoescena08" (Centro Cultural Recoleta), at the theater "Cali Teatro" and at the universities "Javeriana" and "San Buenaventura" (Cali, Colombia, 2009).
