DIRECTOR Andrés del Bosque
Costume Design, Mask design Felype de Lima
Ah, Don Perlimplín! A dirty old man, a powerless puppet, you could not enjoy the body of Belisa ... Belisa´s body was for muscular youths with lips like hot coals... I loved your body instead, nothing more ... only your body! ...
Do not expect to find the chimeric and altruistic side of romantic love here. When the lights go out, begins the cruel and funny story of a man who needs a woman to so as not to wither alone, or become resigned to age and a simple death. When the lights go out, begins the crazy and exhausting adventure of a young man looking for something in everyone and finding it in no one. Because this is a love story, this is a story of desires: the mad desire to love, to like, to live to the end, to challenge time and inevitable old age. The characters in this adventure in gloom, driven by an inexhaustible longing, wander through a lush garden in the middle of the night in search of eternal youth.
