Synopsis


“And for our next act …


The Magical Military Junta …


Will make 30,000 people disappear before your very eyes.”


1970s Argentina.


A violent, right-wing dictatorship.


Thousands of citizens, seized by the authorities, have “disappeared”.


Inside the country’s most disreputable club, a mother is about to risk everything to find her missing daughter.


Spectacular, arresting and totally unique, These Trees are Made of Blood blends cabaret and original live music to tell a vital, human story from Argentina’s Dirty War.


Step into Buenos Aires for this immersive theatrical experience, which pulls back the curtain on a secretive state, and shines the spotlight on a powerful act of resistance.


Following a sold-out premiere in 2015, the cabaret coup reignites at Arcola for four weeks only.
