En medio de una crisis social sin precedentes, el rey Ubú se ve obligado a regresar a la isla que él mismo fundó: la mítica Uba, donde el pueblo se ha rebelado ante la miseria imperante. Para colmo, una pandemia desconocida invade el mundo a gran velocidad y amenaza con penetrar en la isla. Convencido de la inmunidad de sus habitantes, Ubú lanza una insólita campaña para recapitalizar el país en medio del desastre, sin intuir que su estrategia provocará un aciago desenlace.

Amid an unprecedented social crisis, King Ubú is forced to return to the island he founded, the mythical Uba, whose people have rebelled in response to widespread poverty. To top it off, a hitherto unknown pandemic is overrunning the world at lightning speed and threatening to spread onto the island. Convinced of the residents’ immunity, Ubú launches an unusual campaign to build up the country in the midst of the disaster, not realizing his strategy will prompt a fateful outcome.

Performed with English supertitles. Immediately after the opening performance (July 22) a chat-back with the company will take place.
