Description:

“Maria de Buenos Aires” is a story about life, death and rebirth, the main character becoming on stage the embodiment of a passionate, destructive, decadent, but having Buenos Aires the possibility of saving oneself precisely by assuming and understanding one’s destiny. The story surreal revolves around a light woman from the Argentine capital, named Maria, a character who, after death, becomes Mary’s Shadow on stage and restores the course of her life. Her journey is marked by the meeting with a poet, a few “puppets” under control and a circus of psychoanalysts.

Proposing an original vision, the reinterpretation of the libretto opposes power to pure fatality cathartic of the struggle with destiny and gives up blasphemous allusions to an unjust deity which relentlessly determines a predetermined course of events. Through the struggle he is waging his shadow to prevent the repetition of personal history in the life of his daughter, an alter ego of hers, Maria, in fact, opposes her own destiny and overcomes fatality.
