In this regard, the Councilor for Social Policies and Equality, María José Pulido, who has been accompanied by the Deputy Mayor for Culture, Daniel Mantero, has wanted to value that “it is a function whose main objective is to clearly address the sexist violence, showing the story of an abused woman and three possible outcomes that invite minors to reflect and become aware of the seriousness of this social problem so present in our days ”.

For this, as the director of this function, Diego Garrido points out, “in this play some of the situations that may arise in a real case of sexist violence are staged with professional actors, such as the murder and death of the victim, which the woman takes care of her executioner until the end of her days and, finally, the only hopeful way out, that she escapes from her abuser and the nightmare she is living ”.

It should be noted that this original and innovative montage is developed through the fusion of theater, music, dance and aerial choreography with fabrics, also with the participation of an artist who, throughout the performance, can be seen painting live a painting allusive to this theme.
