Mundo Barrio is a project working with young people to create documentary theater, and
takes place in the socio-cultural center in San Cristóbal de los Ángeles, Madrid. It came into
being as a proposal to create a documentary play with the neighborhood's residents. The
fruit of this project is the group Les Petazetas, made up of 10 young women, activists from
the Villaverde neighborhood (and the world). It uses artistic creation to offer a critical view
of gender, sexual diversity and cultural diversity.
Under the artistic direction of Nacho Bilbao, they create a play in which they tell real,
silenced stories in the first person. In the show "Transparente" they speak from their
perspective about migrant persons, reflecting real stories and highlighting the diversity of
existing imaginaries and life projects.
Les Petazetas is made up of young women from Spain, Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, Morocco
and also first generation daughters of Moroccan, Dominican and Cuban families.
The work is the result of the Mundo Barrio community creation project, carried out with the
support of the Madrid City Council's 2017 subsides for contemporary creation, within the
program Residencias Urbanas de Creación CiudaDistrito (“Urban Residences of CitiDistrict
