Paola Hernandez's book Staging Lives in Latin American Theater: Bodies, Objects, Archives (Northwestern UP, 2021) looks at a wide range of documentary theatre practices across South and Central America, including the plays of Guillermo Calderón, the biodramas of Vivi Tellas, and the autobiographical reenactments of Lola Arias. Throughout, she examines how work that straddles the lines between fact and fiction and between public and private has been used to process the trauma's of Latin America's present and recent past, including the Malvinas war, deadly border crossings, and the long legacy of the southern cone dictatorships. This book will be of interest to anyone engaged with documentary theatre, or for anyone looking for an introduction into contemporary Latin American theatre.
