SOBRE LA OBRA
ProyectoTeatro tiene el orgullo de colaborar con FormasenAudioenMovimiento para traer al escenario de Austin la obra de teatro Manos de Mariposa, escrita y dirigida por el español Domingo Ferrandis. Una puesta en escena que habla de lo que sucede en México, pero recalcar que no está alejado de lo que ocurre en otras partes del mundo. Las noticias de horror se suceden sin pausa, a tal ritmo que crean inmunidad ante el dolor ajeno.

Manos de Mariposa cuestiona a los medios de comunicación que viven del morbo, se nutren de lo malo y obvian lo maravilloso, en este caso de México. Como aquel día que asesinaron a Nadia Vera, Ruben Espinosa junto a otras tres chicas y se creó esa dualidad: la de unos pocos haciendo un ruido atronador capaz de traspasar fronteras, al mismo tiempo que causan mucho sufrimiento dentro, y el de un pueblo que es hospitalario, solidario y fuerte, que sale a la calle a defender los derechos y libertades, crea cultura, ciencia y arte.

Esta obra enfrenta dos realidades, la memoria de un lugar con la travesía personal de quienes la habitan. La trama trata sobre estos dos mundos que se afectan continuamente; el macro: raíces, sociedad, cultura, política, activismo. El micro: infancia, identidad, relaciones, miedos, luchas. A partir de la idea de que un mundo no existe sin el otro, la obra anilla en una misma historia los dos relatos: la leyenda de una tierra, México y la biografía personal de Marcos.

ABOUT THE PLAY
ProyectoTeatro has the pleasure of collaborating with FormasenAudioenMovimiento to bring Manos de Mariposa (Butterfly Hands) to the Austin stage for one weekend only. The play, written and directed by Spanish playwright Domingo Ferrandis, explores whats occurring in present-day Mexico, while emphasizing the similarities that are happening around the world. Horrifying news that doesnt seem to stop and with such speed that it creates immunity to the worlds pain.

Manos de Mariposa challenges the duality of the media who live off morbid happenings and feed off of the bad, while ignoring the beautiful; in this case, Mexico. Like the day Nadia Vera and Ruben Vera were killed, along with three other women, and this dynamic creeped up yet again: The world did not hear thunderous sounds of just a few that were loud enough to cross borders while birthing pain inside of those who spoke out. No one heard the hospitable country in solidarity that walked the streets in defense of human rights and liberties, that country which creates culture, science and art every single day.

This play confronts two realities; the memory of a place and the personal journey of those who live there. The relationship between these concepts are drawn out on stage by exploring both ends of the spectrum; the macro: roots, society, culture, politics, and activism. The micro: infancy, identity, relationships, fears, and struggles. Conceptualized from the idea that these two worlds cannot exist independently, Manos de Mariposa fuses in one story, two  experiences: The legend of a land in time, Mexico, and the biography of one man, Marcos.
