Alegoría del mundo y de la condición humana, Santa María del Circo es la historia de un grupo de cirqueros que, al llegar a un pueblo fantasma, no menos desolado que ellos, tratan de fundar un nuevo orden, construir sobre lo destruido . Su vida se convierte así en una función interminable en busca de la propia redención. El circo llegó al pueblo. El pueblo está vacío. ¿Qué hacemos con el circo? ¿Qué hacemos con el pueblo? ¿Qué con el enano, el hombre fuerte y la mujer barbuda? ¿Con el mago, el hombre bala, el contorsionista? Compren su boleto, damas y caballeros, niños y niñas, y entren al circo; ese circo que se va al diablo, lo mismo que todos nosotros. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION An allegory of the world and the human condition, Santa Maria of the Circus is the story of a group of circus performers who settle into a ghost town that was just as demoralized as they were; there they try to build in a destroyed town and draw new societal roles. Their lives thus become an endless performance in search of their own salvation. Come one, come all! The circus is in town! The town is empty, what shall we do with the circus? What shall we do with the town? What about the dwarfs, the world's strongest man, or the bearded woman? What to do with the magician, the bullet man, and the contortionist? Ladies and gentlemen get your tickets, come to the circus children and old; this circus is going to hell, and it's taking us all.
