NO WONDER marks the second collaboration of Argentinians Constanza Macras and Lisi Estaras who research in the piece the gender roles in the superlative from the 70s till today. Four persons by themselves, crashed and stranded in an undefined environment. Is this the garden they have been looking for? Now, the transformation begins: into heroines, into superheroes. And with it comes the fear and the deconstruction of their innermost. What makes an ordinary woman turn into a superheroe? What are the significant parameters for this transformation? Devotion? Emotionality? Intuition? Poetry? Or is it the highest form of omnipotency, the suicide? This is how true heroins look like: They are vulnerable, angry, desperate and on the verge of breakdown. On their search for identity through the small everyday occurrences they hear God talking on the radio. But how does one use this knowledge if carnival always takes place at the same time, whether one likes it or not.
