Inspired by Rosa, Soledad's mother, the term "Quebradas" literally translates into "women turning oneself inside out." It is also a flamenco dance term that refers to a dance move that only women perform, which requires a woman to perform with her chest off its axis.

The piece will feature three women and original music.

At its essence, the piece is about the repression of women, how they find strength within themselves and with each other, independent of men. The piece will be a tribute to all mothers and women.
