A troupe of young Bolivian actors journeys throughout Bolivia in a theater-truck. They gather testimonies of the movements that anchor their urban, indigenous/mestizo and rebellious identity, the migrations from the countryside to their city, El Alto, and the resulting power shift that led to the popular rebellion of 2003, the Gas War. The war sparked the transformation of Bolivia into an indigenous-led country. From a young, revolutionary perspective, the troupe of actors’ art transforms this memory.
