DON CHIPOTLE is a magical adventure story, where two 11-year old boys cross a vast metropolis in order to put the world to right.
Inspired by the classic story of Don Quixote and Juan Villa's experience growing up in an immensely violent environment, this coming-of-age play explores cultural identity, violence, death, family and friendship and the importance of imagination and hope in any child’s ability to survive. This epic adventure, told through puppetry, animation, music and a children’s choir, will birth a new superhero.
