Experiencing Interruptions?

Teatro del Desencuentro

A group of children wake up in a cage in the dark, they do not remember themselves or their peers. They want to know who they are and what to do with their situation, but their own fears and desires, together with those of the others affect them, make it difficult for them to understand their situation and resolve it. They will have to organize themselves in their mind and in their group to be able to solve it.
