About the show

In Repertorio Español's new production, Alex and Bruno make a strange couple. Their only commonality is that they are men, and that they have fallen in love.  More…

A Japanese legend says that when two people are destined to be together, an invisible red thread tied to the little finger of the hand binds them from the day they are born. Alex and Bruno's differences seem insurmountable, and their antagonistic personalities, whether they like it or not, are united by that red thread, however often they are bound to break it.

Performed in Spanish with English supertitles.
