Abstract

In May 2002, 119 people were killed in a church in the remote Colombian province of Chocó. The Afro-Colombian communities of Chocó, caught in the middle of a savage armed conflict, are the subject of Felipe Vergara's new play, Kilele. Kilele toured the river communities on the Atrato River that inspired the play. What is the role and responsibility of the artist who is trying to offer relief and support resistance within a volatile zone of conflict?
