«THE COMPANY’S STAGING, ONCE AGAIN, BRINGS AN INNOVATIVE VISUAL DESIGN, MIXING ELEMENTS OF CINEMA, MULTIMEDIA VISUAL EFFECTS AND THEATER, IN AN EVOLUTION OF THEIR ARTISTIC LANGUAGE» – LA NACIÓN
María Margarita is the best at interpreting the stories from the movies for those who live in the mining camp on the nitrate salt flats. After seeing the movies projected at the movie theater in the office, she relates, acts, sings and performs the romance, adventures and heroics of the movies to a captive audience of miners and their families. However, the camp, its inhabitants and the nitrate fields themselves are facing extinction. Over the course of just one lifetime, everything fades and disappears. Only María Margarita and the ghosts who inhabit her fantasies remain.
