This work is about something vital, something very important. It refers to people who have nothing … something that seems difficult to express; It seems impossible, but yes, it is people who have nothing; It is abandoned people, who live in the dump, and all their activities are there, they have no communication with the outside, they are full of needs and the day they asked for help, nobody offered them a hand. No one. They were simply ignored. All this was sad and tragic for me, and that is what I wanted to put on stage”, said the director of the assembly, Jaime Hernández.

Tickets for “Unique looking at the sea” can be purchased on the website and have a cost of ¢ 7,500 colones; Gold students and citizens with a card, ¢ 4,000 colones.
