Beasts

In the extreme isolation of the Andean foothills, three sisters are found hung from a rock, their animals slaughtered beside them. Justa, Lucia and Luciana are three Coya (indigenous Andean) sisters, and the last remnants of a large family who tried to survive in an inhospitable environment. 

This profound play invokes the true meaning of loneliness.

Based on the true story of three sisters, whom in October of 1974 were found tied together at the waist and hung near their home in the desert region of northern Chile. The press claimed that it was a ceremonial suicide. However, the fascination revolving around this tragic tale led to a number of theories including the involvement from the military.
