« We strive to restore the uncertainty with which we try to express what makes a memory take refuge in our mind. » (Jorge A. Vargas). The play Baños Roma revolves around the popular Mexican figure of José Angel Napoles, better known as « Mantequilla » a world champion in boxing. The name is a reference to the gym in Juarez where the sportsman of Cuban origin trained in his youth. The show depicts not only a man but also a city destroyed by violence and drug trafficking. The five actors on stage address the turn to violence faced as on a boxing ring with a painful, recent past which they must carry together into the present.
