Resumen

SAEZ, Alejandra. The Acting of the Law. Acta poét [online]. 2021, vol.42, n.2, pp.47-76.  Epub 27-Sep-2021. ISSN 2448-735X.  https://doi.org/10.19130/iifl.ap.2021.2.18123.

Law, in its structure and from its first conformation, shares the same matrix with theater. Elements such as representation, spectacle, storytelling and actions are constitutive of both subjects, which makes law an eminently fictitious practice. This becomes evident in the case of Jorge Mateluna, former member of the patriotic front Manuel Rodriguez, who was arrested and sentenced to 16 years in prison for a crime he did not commit, a case denounced in the play Mateluna by Chilean playwright Guillermo Calderon, staging that, when compared to the legal case, reveals the theatrical and fictitious nature of law.

Palabras llave : Theater; Law; Fiction; Law Performance; Representation.
