Aurora Cano

Moscow 16


Teatro de Babel, Mexico City, Mexico

Director: Aurora Cano

Performed in Spanish with Hungarian and English subtitles

1 hours 50 minutes, without breaks.

Three women lost in a theater at the beginning of the 21st century. Three actresses in search of a spectator travel from the Russian steppe to the Mexican wasteland. Three generations of sisters, artists, incendiaries, question the relevance of the theater and the direction of their personal lives as they try to reach a place where everything can be dazzling or, at least, warm.
