About this event

The image of Emiliano Zapata is built (or destroyed) via a series of feminine voices that assuredly knew him: the midwife who attended his birth, his mother, his sister and one of his lovers; all of them painting an intimate image of “The Atilla of the South”. Emiliano´s Women is a play with funny, heartbroken, overshadowed, blood-stained voices; old voices that may seem current because no revolution has achieved justice for women.

This viewing includes cocktails and food.

The play will be screened in Spanish with English subtitles.
