In this play about European expansion and cultural clashes at the dawn of the 16th century,

a fictional world of magical realism materializes. The plot loosely borrows from the narrative

structure of Shakespeare's The Tempest and is rooted in language and events from the

discovery journals of Bartolome de Las Casas, Christopher Columbus and Alvar Núñez Cabeza

de Vaca. These chroniclers traverse a shipwreck story that probes the psychological depths

of their brazen entitlement and utter disorientation. As the characters navigate dreamscapes

informed by Taino and Mayan cosmologies and contemporary archeological and historical

findings, poignant reflections on early struggles for human rights on the “American” continent
