Lagartijas Tiradas al Sol: Se Rompen Las Olas (Breaking the Waves)


"Original and irreverent, raw, genuine and vivid narrative." —Altrevelocita

U.S. Premiere

Charismatic writer/director/performer Mariana Villegas delivers a funny and emotionally moving performance that takes the audience on an engaging search to find meaning in a life born from catastrophe. With accompanying video by Carlos Gamboa, Se Rompen Las Olas untangles the story of how Villegas' parents met in the aftermath of the devastating 1985 earthquake in Mexico City, and the sometimes frustrating reality of how an individual’s life is shaped by the circumstances that set it in motion. This new work from the Mexico City-based theater collective Lagartijas Tiradas al Sol continues the company's tradition of transforming documentary material into powerful and politically informed theater that blurs the line between fiction and reality.
