The repercussions of the radio broadcast called The War Of The Worlds By H.G. Wells, directed and starring a very young Orson Welles in 1938, are well known.

The pre-war context, the penetration of radio in homes, the spectacular nature of the subject matter and the novel narrative strategy of the fake newscast created an explosive cocktail. Orson himself was surprised: his purpose was not deception, but illusion. In this case, the illusion created by experimenting with a language: that of the radio theater, of which Welles became a great master before his landing in the cinema and whose foundation is the story built solely through sound, created in remote circumstances.

What happens if a text designed to dispense with the image is staged? By making visible the attractive maneuver that generates a radio theater, is it not an attempt against the capacity of that sound story to generate illusion? In any theatrical event, interpretation and the fiction it produces coexist and are usually amalgamated in an indiscernible way. What if we brutally separate them? Can we aspire to the production of magic when we can to produce magic when we do nothing more than show the trick?
