It was born as an investigation based on Lorca's trilogy of tragedies that make it up: La casa de Bernarda Alba, Yerma and Bodas de sangre. The group made up of actors, director and playwright make a study of these works both textually and symbolically, collecting their themes and images, thus developing this new text that questions gender in this particular playwright. Taking distance from the author and the characters to have a parallel look, we ask ourselves: What is tragedy? And how is the tragedy of Lorca? Through the questioning of the actors who are representing a play, we are introduced to the fiction that highlights the values ​​in the treatment of human conflicts that made this playwright a classic and universal author.
