Über das Stück

„This piece is inspired by the emotions I have felt during the present pandemic, from despair and anguish to laughter at the mismanagement of certain governments. This piece should be acted, not only singed. The players can express their own emotions through sound, weeping, laughter and bodily movements.“ Maria Gabriela Rubio
