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
