Julieta tells the story of a woman – full of experiences and quirkiness – and the multiple layers that old age brings. Transcending the literal to accommodate the humor and nuances of the human experience, it is a visual non-verbal one-woman show of physical theatre that deals with the split between youth and old age.
Bursting with wit and a zest for life, Julieta shares her days with us and invites us into her home that has become her whole world. Through her daily routines we witness the different stages of life, and how our self-image transforms, mutates and warps accordingly. As her surroundings morph into a mirror house of memories, Julieta finds ways to adapt.
Inspired by the life of Gabriela Muñoz’s great aunt, Julieta is a tribute to a full life, and a life lived to the fullest.
