Three solitudes, three solitudes combined with pain. In an inn, the inn where Cassio has lost his head and the position of lieutenant (they say), three characters-witnesses go through the story of Othello, measuring it with their ambitions-desires-frustrations.
A roundabout of losers. A triangle of solitudes in a rectangle of history. Characters that look like ghosts: they move like tree leaves at night. A story in several voices, interwoven with screams shouted in a low voice.
Like stones embedded in the inn that belongs to them, Magdalena and Lucio together with the Digger, embody this triangle that takes on different shapes from time to time, with distances that come close and move away, but with vertices that can never touch.
