From 1519 to 1522 Fernando de Magallanes set off to circumnavigate the globe. Magallanes succumbed to a poisoned arrow, but his expedition was successful.

This historical science-fiction play explores the first round-the-world voyage and Ferdinand Magallan’s relationship with church, state, his co-explorer Juan Sebastián Elcano, and indigeous people from five continents. During a 500-year confinement, Magellan strikes up dialogues with Shakespeare, stars and stones in his efforts to stay sane. He time-travels from evolution to globalisation, forcing us to ask ourselves exactly what the first circumnavigation of the earth has brought to us, five hundred years later.

Duration: 72 min.
Performed in Spanish with optional English subtitles
