Vaca 35 Teatro en Grupo [MX]
Lo único que necesita una gran actriz, es una gran obra y las ganas de triunfar
Humility can only be born of humiliation; otherwise, it is nothing but vanity.
Jean Genet, Querelle de Brest

In 1933, two housemaids from Le Mans brutally murdered their employer's wife and daughter. Fourteen years later and clearly inspired by the Papin case, Jean Genet published one of his masterpieces, The Maids. Mexican theater collective Vaca 35 invites us into the cramped maids' room for a new look at Genet's assault on social stereotypes, based on an explosive mix of "acting, theater as the only escape, eating, drinking, dancing, and the odd fairytale."

Presented in collaboration with Maria Matos Teatro Municipal.

Vaca 35 Teatro en Grupo, founded in 2007, is a group of actors and theater-makers in perpetual dialog. Their work has been presented in Mexico and abroad (in countries such as Spain, Cuba, Mexico, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Chile, Italy, Argentina, Colombia, Uruguay, and Peru; and in festivals such as Fringe Madrid, Fira Tárrega, Mess, Casa Festival, Festival del Centro Histórico, FIAC, TABA, Temporales Teatrales, Rafaela, Santiago a Mil, Mirada, Casa Tomada, among others). The ensemble produces new work and engages in artistic research, while also focusing on its own training, labs, and studio sessions. It strives to generate theatrical alternatives and critical thought, marked by creative autonomy. In a quest to develop the theatrical event and to provide an honest experience, it establishes direct dialog with the audience and is committed both to the work itself and to what surrounds it.
