Synopsis

The staging revolves around the story of a man who will interpret the role of “Jesus Christ” during the Holy Week. The man decides to make some changes to the texts of the representation in order to launch a new nation. The intent fails and he is imprisoned. His wife, Guadalupe, explains what happened to their teenager son who shows no interest whatsoever to what has happened to his father. He is absorbed in pages and videos on the Internet. Meanwhile, the community is celebrating ‘nahuales’ legends and the transformation of the Savior into a rabbit, a cactus and mezcal, metamorphoses derived from the name of our country. This tale aims at relating the mythical, ritual and political thought of our country and the changes our country is currently going through before the loss of the borders on the Internet and the change of paradigms of the western culture.
