Caborca presents OCTOPUS'S GARDEN, the first English language translation of Argentinian playwright Arístides Vargass seminal work of Latin American political theatre, Jardín de pulpos, translated by Aurora Lauzardo Ugarte. Javier Antonio González directs this visionary production infused with original compositions by Puerto Rican composer and ethnomusicologist Pílli Aponte.

A man enlists the town madwoman to help him recover his memory at the seashore. He encounters the ghosts of his ancestors emerging from the rupture of authoritarian violence, inviting him to dream again.
