A masked Venezuelan protester lies dying on a Caracas street, shot in the chest by a soldier who realizes to his horror he's killed his younger brother. It might be an episode from Venezuela's protests last year – one of about 125 people who died in months of unrest that saw daily clashes between demonstrators and security forces. It is actually a scene hundreds of Venezuelans have been paying to watch daily at an improvised theater in an old bingo hall, part of a wave of new productions reflecting on Venezuela's political crisis and economic meltdown. Each night for the past two months at Caracas' once-glamorous Tamanaco shopping center local directors have staged recurring 15-minute plays in 30 "microtheaters," with space for several dozen tightly-packed viewers an arm's length from the cast.Since the season started in April, Pineres said, tens of thousands of Venezuelans have come to see microtheater shows.
