Event description

A duo of interdisciplinary artists, known as The Auteur and The World, are looking to create the ultimate piece to hold a mirror up to society. In this adaptation inspired by the Spanish Golden Age allegorical play of the same name, the pair will challenge six humans to play persisting and culture-transcending archetypes in a show that represents life.

Written by Pedro Calderón de la Barca
Adapted by Fernando de Miguel Fuertes
