Las Azurduy is an original play by the Argentinian playwright , Florencia Aroldi, commissioned by La Lengua Teatro en Español, and under the direction of Eugenia Arbol.

The story is a a journey into the mind of a female warrior, minutes before her death and during her last battle against oblivion.

In this play you get to know and understand the powerful figure of Juana Azurduy (1780- 1862), a South American independence leader, whose courage, conviction, and spirit required not only one but three characters on this production to recount her feats; that is why the play is called ¨Las Azurduy¨.
