KLARA Theaterproduktionen

Palmasola tells the survival strategies,  dreams and nightmares of the prisoners in the penitentiary of the same name. It examines the “regularities” of this “state within a state”, the fragility of what we believe is humanity against primary survival, almost animal survival of everyday life. The necessity and improvisation of a country’s justice such as Bolivia, that could be whatever’s in Latin America.
