Synopsis

Mendoza is an adaptation of Shakespeare's Macbeth in 1910 revolutionary Mexico.

A story of ambition, violence and power; more up to date than ever. The play takes us through the turbulent years at the beginning of the 20th century in this Central American country. General José Mendoza receives a tempting prophecy from an old witch, made even worse by his persuasive wife. This marks the beginning of a bloodbath with no end in sight.

A canteen, six actors and three actresses comprise the ingredients in the staging of a play that draws from the dramaturgy of Juan Rulfo and Elena Garro.

"Los Colochos Teatro" is a six-year-old Mexican company that, despite its infancy, has participated in several international festivals.

Their repertoire is made of works such as "El juego de la silla" (The Chair Game), a puppet show suitable for all audiences about the Mexican Revolution; "El enigma del Serengueti" (The Serengeti Enigma), a dark comedy masquerade about desolation; and Mendoza, the adaptation of Macbeth with the backing of FONCA 2011-2012, a programme for the financing of young creators.
