WINNING PROJECT that went to the proposal presented by Recolectores Teatro “Tribulto”, the definitive tribute to the musicals of your life. “Tribulto” is a gritty comedy. A story of losers and dignity. A nonsense made with a lot of love. It is a work that speaks of the profession, of the pandemic, of precariousness and of losing. Our protagonists know few things about life, but they haven’t learned how to lose either, and that’s why they are here, trying once again.
