In the midst of a great regional drought, a town sends two of its members to find out the causes of the lack of water. The pilgrims will have to travel far, towards their deep roots in order to understand what is happening.


RIO is the story of a people without water, of a long journey, of a humanity that got lost. An invitation to reflect on the walk of human beings on this earth.


There is a sense of nostalgia in this show, a will to caress the scent of childhood, to draw a bridge that take us to our land, to recognize ourselves through its traditions and to find fertile land to build our own rituals. But also there is a desperate attempt of humanity to cope with global devastation and uncontrolled growth as well as with our individual greed and pursuit of personal comfort.


RIO is a ritual to heal wounds, regain confidence, resume dialogue, open ourselves to ideas and ways of acting differently, take time, have time, accept failure, accept the defeat, accept the deaths, accept the fear, recognize that we are still alive and that carries along hope. That is a great human paradox, we have reached this point where it seems that we have ruined everything, that the depth of our wounds is such that we will not be able to heal, but nevertheless and inexplicably we still have hope.

Laughter, if it happens, will give us courage to embrace the totality of our life experience and recognize the other as "another me".
