Plus – meet the makers of one of this year’s biggest festival shows, Question Project. Get a behind-the-scenes glimpse at how artist collective Mil M2 create vital, engaging and extraordinary work both in Chile and around the world.
Emily Faulconer leads all oenological projects for Carmen, Chile’s oldest winery and one of the most important in the history of the country's winemaking. She is an Agricultural Engineer graduate from the Universidad Católica, and has a diverse number of experiences under her belt. Her passion for what she does has led her, among other things, to live for a year and a half in the Elqui Valley, leading the planning, operation and execution of the viticulture and oenological work of Viñedos Alcohuaz. She has also worked in wineries in the United States (Cakebread Cellars), New Zealand (Trinity Hill Winery) and France (Chateau Canon).
At its beginning, the Santiago de Chile-based interdisciplinary Mil M2 (One Thousand Square Metres) temporarily occupied abandoned building with the aim of fostering knowledge-sharing activities. Now nomadic, the collective creates artistic processes that promote civic involvement by enabling debates in public spaces. The collective is Constanza Carvajal, Diego Cortés, Cote Jana, Cecilia Moya Rivera, Fernando Portal and Pedro Sepulveda Cruz-Coke.Come along to celebrate Fiestas Patrias, Chile’s National Day, with Dublin Fringe Festival.
