Upstairs at Chicago Shakespeare

a WorldStage production from México
directed by Héctor Flores Komatsu 

An honest and powerful reflection on what indigenous people face today


Finely woven narrative that leads from laughter to tears



The Play

Woven from ancestral myths, traditional music and arts, and a three-person narrative, Andares reveals the extraordinary, untold stories of ordinary, humble people who inhabit México’s most remote corners. Created by director Héctor Flores Komatsu from his personal search to know and understand the original cultures of his homeland, Andares is a moving, fierce denunciation against a present that seems intent upon destroying what was once held as sacred.
