Yoseli has a tattoo of the Eiffel Tower on her back and has always wanted to travel, but she was arres- ted at the airport for drug trafficking. Nacho is a trans man who was arrested for swindling and star- ted a rock band in jail. Gentle or rough, blonde or shaved, cis or trans, long-term inmates or newly ad- mitted: in this hybrid musical, they all re-enact their lives in a Buenos Aires prison.
Reas is a collective work that reinvents the musical genre: the performers dance and sing about their past in prison, relive their life as fiction, and invent, through fantasy and imagination, a possible future for themselves.
