The play goes over the notebook of the artist who, when searching for “Casa de Tucumán” on Wikipedia, discovers that the current monument is not the original, but a replica. This triggers many ideas for a performance that includes family trees, processions, karaokes and a translation of the Declaration of Independence.
The piece follows the difficulties in the construction of a Nation’s model, in the construction of a performative action; leaving the question of whether the performance is the reading itself or the projects described in it.
