Memory, politics, performance and justice: The Garzón and la manada (the wolfpack) cases on stage

Professor Maria Delgado
Royal Central School of Speech and Drama

This lecture examines two theatrical pieces, El pan y la sal (2018) and Jauría (2019), which provide public sites for discussing trials that have mobilised public opinion in Spain: the 2012 trial of Investigating Judge Baltasar Garzón, accused of violating an Amnesty Law forbidding any investigation of crimes related to the Franco regime, and the ongoing case of la manada (the wolfpack), a group of five men accused of raping an 18-year old woman in Pamplona. In discussing how these cases have been ‘restaged’, Professor Delgado explores issues of cultural heritage, accountability and immunity, and the role culture can play in challenging both a state-endorsed politics of amnesia and the wider nostalgia for Francoism.

Admission free but booking is essential.
