About This Show

Teatro de la Luna presents the American premiere of Continente Viril (Virile Continent), by Argentinean playwright Alejandro Acobino. Mario Marcel directs.

A TRIP to the bottom of the world; an ENCOUNTER with Antarctica; a DOUBT: Why are the penguins committing suicide? This broad satire combines biting attacks on society’s love of order with mankind’s current war against nature. A dead animal concerns us, the loss of environment alarms us, but the death of man only generates silence, suspicion and misgivings. … And what about those penguins?
