    <subfield code="a">&lt;p&gt;This article presents&amp;nbsp;a theatre work, including critical comments by two specialists. The author, who completed a PhD where he had examined the implementation of large-scale infrastructure projects, decided that the language and communicational dynamics of theatre could provide a better chance to raise awareness and simultaneously contribute to the critique of development policies based on the construction of megaprojects. The piece adopts a satirical approach to explore how policy decisions of such scale are often taken and implemented, delivering a sarcastic analysis, grounded on a real case whose details were anonymized.&amp;nbsp;The present work offers an example of the possibility of dialogue between academy, dramaturgy and scenic arts. It presents an analysis of the motivations that led to staging&amp;nbsp;&lt;em&gt;La Leyenda de Mu&lt;/em&gt;&amp;nbsp;(The Legend of Mu), which has been played for several seasons in Mexico City and was presented on 5- 6 April 2017 at the&amp;nbsp;Moli&amp;eacute;re Theatre, San Jose, Costa Rica, during the&amp;nbsp;VIII International Meeting of the WATERLAT-GOBACIT Network. The work offers a critique of technocracy and of the rational-administrative thinking that is invoked to justify the construction of so-called megaprojects, which have significant impacts on human populations and on the management of natural resources, including water.&lt;/p&gt;
