New mise en scene for hit performance piece by Felix B.Q. and Mathias Britos, ¡Lazaro!'s insight on misery and life transformation proves to be more contemporary than ever. 

Wandering in the desert, two men follow Lazaro's tracks. Hunger oppresses, death lies in wait. In a game between the absurd and the real, the traces left by the fugitive lead them into the delirium of their own story.

Inspired by the classical texts Lazarillo de Tormes (1552 anonymous) and Asinus Aureus (2nd century AD, Apuleius), ¡Lazaro! establishes a dialogue that transcends time and offers a glimpse of human oppression, the manipulation of meaning, the misery that erodes everyday reality. It does so with humour and depth, and with the volume of transformation, of death and resurrection.
