After the death of her second husband, Bernarda Alba imposes her five daughters a rigorous mourning of eight years, forbidding them to go outside of the house. When it is announced that the first-born, Angustias, inherits her father’s fortune, Pepe el Romano, a local scoundrel, wants to put his greedy hands on the money. Angustias is betrothed to Pepe, who instead, falls in love with Adela, the youngest sister, who is willing to become his lover.
When Bernarda finds out about the affair, she shoots Pepe with the help of Martirio. After hearing the shot, Adela hangs herself thinking that Pepe is dead. At the border of madness, Bernarda demands secrecy and mourning for the death of her virgin daughter, Adela.

This magical journey shows us the intimate relationship that exists between the hearts of horses and humans. EQUINNUS is a show that combines acrobatics, high school and dance, to create an incredible exhibition of equestrian arts combined with human skills on stage.
Its blocks include "El Origen", which places us in the Middle East, with the inclusion of horses in the mystical life and cosmology of the first civilizations; "Iberia", which places us in Spain, with the Roman influence and the Moorish conquests to the peninsula, where an intimate and passionate relationship with horses arises, something that can only conjure with the history, magic, feeling and passion of Spain; and "The New World", which describes how, to a mystical and unknown world, travelers of the so-called old world have arrived, and with them a new era begins where horses play a fundamental role in daily life, not only at work , but in the entertainment and love of all, creating a new way of living based on the syncretism resulting from the Spanish and Mesoamerican culture.
It is at this point that the horse acquires a primordial role for Mexico and is integrated into the life of what is now our country. The milestones of Mexican history are traversed to this day.
