Historias para ser contadas, directed by Rosa Luisa Márquez and created in collaboration with Antonio Martorell and the University of Puerto Rico's Teatro Rodante (Traveling Theater), pays homage to renowned Argentinean theater director, writer and activist Osvaldo Dragún. Like a three-ring circus, the play is performed in three different styles: "La historia de un flemón, una mujer y dos hombres" is told by the "Prince of Denmark's Actors Troupe," an ensemble of characters from Western drama masterpieces -- Hamlet, Oedipus, Charlotte Corday, Colombina, among others; "La historia de cómo Panchito se sintió responsable de la epidemia de peste bubónica en África del Sur" is performed by a troupe of clowns/mechanics in an old van-turned-puppet-theater, influenced by Naïve artists and pop culture; "La historia del hombre que se convirtió en perro" is told -- and sung --by a group of Bohemians straight from the 70's Puerto Rican nightlife.
