Macondo is a place of myth, a place where oil spills under and over water, creating a chain reaction that devastates human lives and animal habitats. It is also the name of the ruptured BP undersea oil field and oil well responsible for the current Gulf of Mexico spill. The gods awake from their slumber and intervene in this dramatically unfolding story that currently weaves itself through the fabric of our lives. As theater artists we strive to explore the facts, imagine the secrets, question the truth and use our sense of humor in order to find an expression that can bring new perspectives to the powerful events of our lives.
