Ferula to Esteban

Ferula's letter to Esteban is scripted across the stage as she writes.

Barabbas' Blood

After Barabbas is stabbed, his blood pools around a weeping Clara.

Night of the Knives

As with the earthquake, the sequence for night of the knives included realistic images, such as fire and the faces of the disappeared, interwoven with images of South American graffiti. 

The Earthquake

For the earthquake, the director requested a merging of realistic images and sounds (fire, rock slides), with more stylistic choices such as the ripping of paper.
