Her dramatic world has been compared to the Theatre of the Absurd siamesez general.! In addition, Tamara Holzapfel has already stated her belief that Gambaro fulfills the “basic requisites of the theatre as envisioned by Artaud by using non-rhetorical language integrated with gestures and all kinds of sound, by incorporating psychological cruelty and physical violence, and by assigning primary importance to the mise-en-scene.

The importance of physical space and its manipulation for thematic purposes is graphically demonstrated in The Walls. In this playa young man finds himself detained against his will for offenses unknown to him, very much like the protagonist of Kafka’s The Trial.


Gambaro’s character is manipulatedby his two adversaries so that at the end he is more like a mindless automaton than a human being. This character transformation is reflected in a parallel diminution of the physical surroundings.

Just as his room is stripped bare ofits accessoriesso, too, is he dispossessed of his right to be called a gentleman caballero.


A statue brought to him from the outside world assumes a role parallel to the youth’s – in a sense his double – for at the end, the two are equally incapable ofindependent action.
