About the show

IATI Theater presents a story of relationship between a man and a woman who are avoiding what they must do: talk about themselves and each other. Presented in Spanish with English supertitles. More…

A man and a woman meet in a playground. What might seem like a chance meeting soon becomes fragmented dialogue of two people who know one another too well and who fear getting hurt. So they talk about everything and nothing in particular, anything to avoid talking about themselves or each other. 'Los Columpios' is an absurdist tragicomedy that delves into romantic relationships from a different perspective.
